ACI 222R, the Guide to Protection of Reinforcing Steel in Concrete against Corrosion, is the flagship document of the ACI 222 Committee. The new version of the document is the first major revision since 2001 and comprises the latest state-of-the-art. It presents with a practical emphasis the mechanism of steel corrosion in concrete, corrosion protection in new construction, condition evaluation, and remedial measures to mitigate corrosion in existing structures. The course contains presentations from subject experts on critical topics from the ACI 222R document, such as anode and cathode reaction, chloride threshold research, epoxy coating reinforcement, galvanizing reinforcement, stainless steel reinforcement, waterproofing surface membranes, polymer concrete overlays, portland cement concrete overlays, and latex-modified concrete overlays, allowable chloride limits.
