Abstract

Corrosion of steel in reinforced concrete is a serious concern for owners and asset managers of various concrete structures and infrastructure. Literature suggests there is limited research on long-term corrosion behaviour of various types of reinforced concretes under similar conditions of chloride and surrounding temperature environments. This paper presents results of a comprehensive experimental program designed to investigate the long term corrosion resistance of various types of reinforced concretes in the coupled effect of varying chloride and temperature conditions. Large size specimens (slabs) made of ordinary concrete (OC), lightweight concrete (LWC) and self-compacting concrete (S..
