Corrosion, Resistivity and Permeability

Corrosion potential, concrete resistivity and permeability

The construction industry is rapidly moving towards performance based specifications for concrete durability of new structures; at the same time the assessing of service life of actual reinforced concrete elements is being a subject of increasing concern in the industry. Half-cell potential, concrete resistivity and concrete cover air permeability are the main and most widely accepted indicators of likelihood of corrosion and estimated durability of a concrete structure.
