Description

Poor durability of concrete is a major cause of problems in modern building and civil engineering structures in all countries: the annual cost of investigating and repairing deteriorating reinforced concrete structures runs into many millions of pounds. This book explains the fundamentals of the corrosion of steel in concrete. It is comprehensive and provides a basis for the practising engineer to design concrete structures which avoid the problem using modern concepts and specifications. A limited discussion of corrosion measurement and repairs is also provided.

Contents

Introduction. Mechanisms of Steel Corrosion. Relations Between Corrosion and the Structure and Properties of Concrete. Corrosion Measurements. Corrosion Damage. Corrosion Measurements. Corrosion Control. Specificaitons and Design. Repair and Rehabilitation. Index.
