Abstract:This paper describes an experimental investigation into the behavior of sulphur-infiltrated concrete in a sodium chloride solution with respect to corrosion of the reinforcing steel. The plasticized sulphur-infiltrated concrete as well as the elemental sulphur-infiltrated concrete were used in the investigation. The electrical measurement, both for natural process and accelerated process, has been used in this study as the criterion for the determination of the time to corrosion. The minimum sulphur loading is determined for concrete with different water-cement ratios, above which, the corrosion of reinforcement in concrete will notoccur.
