Title: Some Chemical and Physical Aspects of Phenomena Associated with Chloride-Induced Corrosion
Author(s): William G. Hime and Bernard Erlin
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1-12

Abstract:The wide variety of disciplines involved with the corrosion of steel in concrete has caused difficulties in communication. Each discipline has its own terminology; at times two disciplines use conflicting terms or explanations for the same phenomenon. This paper addresses some areas of such confusion, and presents chemical mechanisms to explain half-cell potentials and causes for chloride-induced corrosion. Examples of such corrosion are presented.
