Abstract

The electro-chemical reaction of corrosion in reinforced concrete (RC) under the effect of varying chloride and temperature is influenced by several construction material parameters, some of which have been overlooked in past research studies. Furthermore, there exists a difference of opinion between various researchers and there is limited data for high temperatures up to 60°C and high chloride concentration up to 10% total chlorides. The objective of the present research was to investigate the severe effects of chloride and temperature on the corrosion of RC material by developing realistic construction material models and performing actual field condition experiments. The experiments cons..
