Corrosion of Steel in Concrete
Understanding, Investigation and Repair, Second Edition
Corrosion of Steel in Concrete provides information on corrosion of steel in atmospherically exposed concrete structures and serves as a guide for those designing, constructing and maintaining buildings, bridges and all reinforced concrete structures.
This new edition incorporates the new European standards as well as USA and other international standards. It also covers developments in galvanic and impressed current cathodic protection, new electrochemical techniques such as electro-osmosis, and stainless steel clad reinforcing bars.
The corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete is a major problem facing civil engineers and surveyors throughout the world today. There will always be a need to build structures in corrosive environments and it is therefore essential to address the problems that result. This is a book to educates about and forms a guide to the problems of corrosion, its causes and how to find solutions.

John P. Broomfield is a leading expert on the corrosion of steel in concrete structures. He has a wealth of experience, having worked as a professional engineer and consultant around the world, and is the recipient of a NACE 2007 Technical Achievement Award.
From reviews of the 1st Edition:
'John Broomfield has managed to achieve what many "in the business" have merely talked about; a comprehensive book on the state-of-the-art of reinforced concrete investigation and repair ... there is a wealth of information on viturally every subject imaginable.' - Construction Repair
'The book is extremely successful and is to be recommenced to all professionals and technically orientated owners who have interests in reinforced concrete structures that do, or may, suffer from corrosion damage.' - Corrosion Management
'The book provides comprehensive information on reinforcement corrosion... it should be essential reading for all structural engineers involved with the design of new structures in severe environments.' - The Structural Engineer
'Provides information on the corrosion of steel ... and serves as a guide for those designing, constructing and maintaining buildings, bridges and reinforced-concrete structures.' - Quality Concrete
