Book Description

Corrosion of Steel in Concrete: Understanding, Investigation and Repair is a guide for designing, constructing and maintaining reinforced concrete structures, such as buildings and bridges. It presents the basics of theory and practice in steel corrosion in concrete and reviews the latest research and developments such as progress on measuring the corrosion threshold for chloride induced corrosion.

This third edition compares the currently proliferating major national and international standards and guidance documents. New developments are considered, such as hybrid anodes for electrochemical treatment and the latest research and developments in assessment such as the use of ground penetrating radar to measure the chloride content of the concrete cover. It overhauls coverage of electrochemical repair and rehabilitation techniques and outlines recent innovations in structural repair and construction and investigates their implications for durability.

The book is ideal for practitioners and graduate students in structural engineering and concrete technology.
