Abstract:
Corrosion assessment of reinforcement embedded in concrete is often carried out by employing various techniques and tests. Half cell potential mapping is a well-known electrochemical technique used mainly to provide information regarding the probability of corrosion in existing reinforced concrete structures. For new structures, corrosion rate monitoring using embedded probes in concrete is used for long term corrosion monitoring and assessment. Cathodic prevention has been applied in various structures to stop the initiation of reinforcement corrosion in new structures located mainly in marine environments. This paper will outline the basis of these techniques and provide general guidelines regarding their use under various conditions.
