Corrosion of Steel in Concrete Structures, Second Edition covers the corrosion of steel reinforced concrete, along with a variety of new topics and future trends. Sections discuss the theoretical concepts of corrosion of steel in concrete structures, analyze the variety of reinforcing materials and concrete, including stainless steel and galvanized steel, cover measurements and evaluations, such as electrochemical techniques and acoustic emission, review protection and maintenance methods, and analyze modeling. Topics covered include the steel/concrete interface, the influence of steel microstructure on its corrosion in concrete, data collection and analysis on chloride-induced corrosion, corrosion detection devices, and new advances.
