Corrosion of rebar in concrete structures is one among the various causes impairing its long-term durability. Precise assessment of corrosion rate CR is of prime importance to evaluate the structural safety as well as for estimation of service life of concrete structures. Among the electrochemical techniques, Galvanostatic Pulse Technique GPT is very promising for field mapping due to its rapidity.

Replacement of Bearings in the Golden Horn Bridge. Jump to Page. Search inside document. Scope 1. A cconercte surface that has died tothe extent that itis a diefectic and surfaces that ure coated with a dielecsic materiel will not provide an acceptable electrical circuit. The basic configuration Of the electrical circuit is shown in Fig.

It is olen necessary to use other data such as chloride contents, depth of carbonation, elamination survey findings, rate of corrosion results, and environmental exposure conditions, in addition to half-cell potential measurements, 10 formulate conclusions concerning corrosion activity of embedded steel and its probuble effect on the service life of a structure, 1.

Tt consists of a rigid tube or container composed of adiclectic material that is nonreactive with copper or copper sulfate, a porous wooden or plastic piug that remains wet by capillary action, and a copper rod that is immersed within the tube ina saturated solution of copper sulfate, The solution sball be prepared with reagent grade copper sulfate crystals dis- solved in distilled or deionized water.

The solution may be consideved saturated when an excess of erystals undissolved lies atthe bottom of the solution. Ir shal! The sponge may be folded around and attached to the tip of the half coll so that i provides electrical continuity becween the porous plug anc! One such solution is composed of a mixture of 95 ml. This has been accomplished by using no tore than a total of linear ft m of at least AWG No. Callbraton and Stndardzaon S.

Generally, larger spacings increase the prohabty that eliza cores aeas wil ns he deeote. To ensare a low electrical resistance connection, scrape the bar or beush the wire before connecting to the reinforcing stecl.

In certain cases, this technigue may require removal of some concrete to expose the reinforcing steel. Electically connect the reinforcing steel to the positive tsrninal of the voluneter, 6.

Is either case, the half-cel method should not be used. Accomplish this by spraying or otherwise wetting either the entire concrete surface or only the points of mea- surement as described in 6,1 with the golution described in 4. No free surface water should remain between grid points woen potential measurements are initiated. Do not romove the sponges from the concrete surface until after the hall-cell Potential reading is made. The precise location of corrosion activity requires knowledge of the elee- trical resistance of the matetial between the half cell and the corroding steel.

How- fever, aditionally ensure that the copper. Recording Half-Cell Potential Values 7. Data Presentation 8.

Information on these techniques is presented in Appendix XL 9. The numeric magnitude does not indicate the corrosion rate of the stel except under certain specific conditions, 9.

Guidelines and test methods issved by ASTM Commitize Gel and the National Association of Corosion Engineers can be very useful in investigations involving half-ell potential determinations. For ex ample, increasing concentrations of chloride can reduce the FIG. Unless such chemistry, and the presence or ubsence of competing electrode reactions, known, 2 halfcell potential should not be interpreted as indicative of corrosion rate or even as indicative of a cotrosion reaction, Report Voltages listed are referenced to the eapper-copper sulfate half cel XI.

Barrios-Durstewitz , C. Gaona-Tiburcio , F. 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. All specimens were placed in a 3.
