Chloride ingress and corrosion from the Swedish field exposures under the marine environment
Paper in proceedings, 2008
This paper presents the results from several Swedish national research projects dealing with durability of marine concrete structures. In the beginning of 1990’s, some 40 types of concrete specimens were exposed to seawater at the field station at the western coast of Sweden. Totally about 240 chloride profiles measured after 0.5, 1, 2, 5 and 10 years exposure and about 100 moisture profiles after 5 and 10 years exposure have been collected. These collected data supply unique opportunities for validation of the rapid test methods and the prediction models for chloride ingress and corrosion of reinforcement steel in concrete.
