Abstract:
A major laboratory and field study on the corrosion behaviour of reinforced concrete in a marine tidal exposure has been undertaken by CCAA and CSIRO since 2001. The study focuses on the quantification of the steel corrosion through the various stages of service life of reinforced concrete structure. This paper reports the interim results of this on-going research. Small reinforced concrete slabs were cast from six concrete mixes. Concrete were made with three cements, each at two water-to-cement ratios.
