    "Corrosion of Steel in Concrete provides information on corrosion of steel in atmospherically exposed concrete structures and serves as a guide for those designing, constructing and maintaining buildings, bridges and all reinforced concrete structures. This new edition incorporates the new European standards as well as USA and other international standards. It also covers developments in galvanic and impressed current cathodic protection, new electrochemical techniques such as electro osmosis, and stainless steel clad reinforcing bars. The corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete is a major problem facing civil engineers and surveyors throughout the world today. There will always be a need to build structures in corrosive environments and it is therefore essential to address the problems that result. This is a book to educates about and forms a guide to the problems of corrosion, its causes and how to find solutions.


    • Introduction.

    Compiled by: John Broomfield

    A compilation of papers presented at NACE Annual Conference 2000-2003. Several years worth of papers on corrosion of steel reinforcement in the build environment have been combined into a single volume to give an overview of the present state of the art and of the practice of corrosion assessment and control of reinforced concrete structures. The fully-searchable cdrom contains over 75 papers that have been grouped into major subjects and sub-headings. The editor has also provided cross-references to other papers on the cdrom as well. Aimed at those involved in the research, development, engineering, and maintenance of reinforced concrete structures, the cdrom enables the corrosion engineer to carry an electronic toolbox of assessment and rehabilitation techniques.
