Once the alkaline environment is destroyed, the protective layer of oxide on the steel surface is destroyed and corrosion may start.
Data collection and processing of test results comply with major industry c87-691. Carbon dioxide can cause corrosion primarily by reducing the pH of the concrete. However, the passive layer does not provide a perfect and permanent barrier in aggressive environments containing initiators of corrosion primarily c867-91 ions like sulphates and chlorides, humidity, carbon dioxide, and oxygen .
Selectable grid with metric or imperial units. If required, objects can be rotated and mirrored. This is the result of the interaction between chemical and biological agents . The concrete cover provides an alkaline environment surrounding the c87691, resulting in the formation of an oxide astmm, called a passive film, which protects the steel from corrosion. Comments about specific points on the concrete structure can be placed directly in the potential map.
Separately measured objects can be merged to a complete potential map. These factors, together with inadequate construction practices in difficult environmental conditions, lead to corrosion of the reinforcing steel. Concrete cover in excess of 3 in.
This early detection can be a key in preventing an unanticipated structural failure. Corrosion of reinforced steel has two principal problems that affect the service life of concrete reinforced structures .
It enables the identification of concrete corrosion before it becomes visible and has caused damage. All specimens were placed in a 3. The basic configuration of the electrical circuit is shown in Fig. This statistical presentation is the basis for an efficient interpretation of the half-cell potentials by the corrosion engineer. Six AA batteries, 1. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Concrete surfaces that are coated or treated with sealers may not provide an acceptable electrical circuit.
A potential field can be measured on the concrete surface by c876-911 use of an electrode, known as a half-cell, and a high-impedance voltmeter. Up to measurement values are displayed at a time in easy-to read grey-scale and a menu-driven approach facilitates simple operation using just nine keys.
Concrete is a porous material and the ingress of water, oxygen, and aggressive ions, such as chlorides, can cause the passive layer on reinforced steel to break down.

For the latest corrosion mapping system from Proceq please take a look at the Profometer Corrosion. Degradation of concrete structures by corrosion processes is a serious problem and has major economic implications . Additives, such as fly ash, microsilica, rice husk ash, and cane sugar bagasse ash, have a size breakdown that allows the reduction of concrete pore size and, consequently, may reduce the corrosion process.
The results showed that reinforced concrete containing sugar cane bagasse ash has the lowest corrosion rates in comparison to reinforced concrete without the additive.

Corrosion of steel in concrete is an electrochemical process. Perth Head Office e This email address is being protected from spambots.
In service conditions, the concrete covering the steel bars gives physical and chemical protection to the reinforcement. It is often necessary to use other data such as chloride contents, depth of carbonation, delamination survey findings, rate of corrosion results, and environmental exposure conditions, in addition to corrosion potential measurements, to formulate conclusions concerning corrosion activity of embedded steel and its probable effect on the service life of a structure.
Based on the user defined threshold potentials that represent certain conditions of the structure, up to four characteristic potential intervals can be chosen.

Concrete surface in building interiors and desert environments lose sufficient moisture so that the concrete resistivity becomes so high that special testing techniques not covered in this test method may be required see 5.

Readings are collected at a predetermined spacings automatically and stored.

This enable the inspector to immediately mark on the concrete surface the areas of concern and to later down load the data for printing in a report.
