Project

Corrosion Propagation Monitoring Using Galvanotstatic Pulse on Reinforced Concrete Legacy Samples

Description

The corrosion propagation stage of carbon steel rebar in high performance concrete might last longer than the typically five years usually attributed for carbon steel rebar in concrete with type I/II Portland cement as the only cementitious material. Monitoring the corrosion rate for a longer period within the propagation stage is relevant. Legacy samples are available at FAU in which corrosion propagation will be monitored using galvanostatic pulse, on samples exposed outdoors and indoors
