Corrosion sensing for assessing and monitoring civil infrastructures

A. Poursaee,    Clemson University, USA

Abstract:

Concrete structures with steel-reinforced rebar are in a continuous and losing battle with corrosive elements that naturally occur from long-term exposure to an aggressive environment. Additionally, because such structures are now required to perform longer than mandated by their original design, many are now woefully obsolete. Clear understanding of the condition of such structures is crucial, from the points of view of both economy and safety. Prediction of the deterioration of steel-reinforced concrete structures due to corrosion and adapting the accurate maintenance protocol are difficult tasks, which would be enhanced ...
