Abstract:
There was one point on which participants of the forum on The Chloride Issue: The New Limits at ACI’s annual convention last March in Denver agreed: We have a lot to learn about the influence of chloride ions in rein-forced concrete. Moderator Arthur L. Walitt, after being introduced by forum chairman Robert Henry, opened the forum by announcing that its purpose was to determine topics on which research is needed. A list of the topics which sur-faced during the forum accompanies this article. The forum, sponsored by ACI Committee 123, Research, opened with prepared presentations by Ted E. Webster, Bernard Erlin, and Richard Gaynor. Excerpts from Websters’s and Gaynor’s presentations appear here, followed by other forum highlights taken from an edited transcript
