Abstract

The effect of chloride content on the corrosion of reinforced bar in concrete was studied. The mixing ratio of the concrete was 1 : 1.78 : 5.35 : 4.73 (water : content : ballast : sand). The studied chloride content was in the range of 0∼3.5 wt%. The corrosion potentials were measured in every week for two years. The copper-copper sulfate electrode (CSE) was employed as a reference electrode. After two years, the corroded structure was examined and compared to measured corrosion potential. Any visible difference was founded in the specimen located indoor and outdoor. The chloride concentration enhanced rusting and reinforced bar, shifting the potential to active range. The results showed good argument with Van daveer criteria. In 3.5 wt% chloride, the potential shifted belong -350 mV after 58week. Specimen in 1.75 wt% chloride, showed the potential between -200 mV∼-350 mV. However those in free chloride solution maintained above -200 mV for the studied period. It can the concluded that the chloride enhanced corrosion of rebar in concrete and the electrochemical potential can be a promising corrosion monitoring technique.
