An approach for measurement of chloride threshold
Journal article, 2013
Chloride induced corrosion is one of the major causes for degradation of reinforced concrete structures. One of the most important factors in this process is the critical chloride content (chloride threshold value) in the vicinity of the reinforcement that causes initiation of corrosion. In this work the development of a practice-related approach that includes specimen shape, preconditioning, corrosion measurement techniques, and calculation concepts, for determining the critical chloride content are presented. The results in this study showed that the presented approach for determining chloride threshold values functioned fairly well, and suggestions for further improvement are proposed.
