This early detection can be a key in preventing an unanticipated structural failure. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
Corrosion of steel in concrete is an electrochemical process. A potential field can be measured on the concrete surface by the use of an electrode, known as a half-cell, and a high-impedance voltmeter. Data collection and processing of test results comply with major industry standards:.

The concrete cover c8769-1 an alkaline environment surrounding the steel, resulting in the formation of an oxide layer, called a qstm film, which protects the steel from corrosion. It is often necessary to use other data such as chloride contents, depth of carbonation, delamination survey findings, rate atm corrosion results, and asym 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.
If required, objects can be rotated and mirrored. This is the result of the interaction between chemical and biological agents . 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. The basic configuration of the electrical circuit is shown in Fig.
Carbon dioxide can cause corrosion primarily by reducing the pH of the concrete. 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. Concrete surfaces that are coated or treated with sealers may not provide an acceptable electrical circuit.
Up to measurement values are displayed at a time in easy-to read grey-scale and a asstm approach facilitates simple operation using just nine keys.
These factors, together with inadequate construction practices in difficult environmental conditions, lead to corrosion of the reinforcing steel.
Corrosion of reinforced steel has two principal problems that affect the service life of concrete reinforced c86-91 . The program generates a potential map, a relative frequency and a cumulative frequency diagram and provides a chipping graph.
This statistical presentation is the basis for an efficient interpretation of the half-cell potentials by the corrosion engineer. It enables the identification of concrete corrosion before it becomes visible and has caused damage.
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. All graphics can be exported as bmp-files into external software for the generation of reports.
Once the alkaline environment is destroyed, the protective layer of oxide on the steel surface is destroyed and corrosion may start.

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.

Six AA batteries, 1. Firstly, accurate field corrosion c8766-91 measurements aid in detecting corrosion in rebars.

Based on the user defined threshold potentials that represent certain conditions of the structure, up to four characteristic potential intervals can be chosen. In service conditions, the concrete covering the steel bars gives physical and chemical protection to the reinforcement. 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.
However, the passive layer does not provide a perfect and permanent barrier in aggressive environments containing initiators of corrosion primarily aggressive ions like sulphates and chlorides, humidity, carbon dioxide, and oxygen . Readings are collected at a predetermined spacings automatically and stored.
The results showed that reinforced concrete containing sugar cane bagasse ash has the lowest corrosion rates in comparison to reinforced concrete without the additive.
