Abstract:
Based on a studu of manu structures that have suff eredfrrom damage due to chloride-in duc ed corrosion of reinforced steel, it appears that even the more stringent limits on chloride now being proposed may be too lenient. Further, only determinations of total chloride may provide a basis for rea-sonable assurance against future corrosion.
