Corrosion of reinforcement : field and laboratory studies for modelling and service life : proceedings of the Nordic seminar in Lund, February 1-2, 1995

Research output: Book/ReportConference proceeding (editor)


"Foreword: The durability of building materials, especially the corrosion of reinforcement in concrete structures, has been a main research area in Scandinavia during the last decades. Results from many laboratories in the Scandinavian countries, and outside of Scandinavia, indicate that there are certain relationships between the service life and different concrete
parameters, such as the water/binder ratio, the type of binder, the concrete cover, etc. It is quite clear, however, that there is, in many cases, lacking agreement between observations in the laboratory and observations in the field. Such discrepancies are especially frequent in
connection with chloride penetration and chloride induced corrosion. Therefore, future research in this area ought to be more concentrated towards finding correlations between the laboratory and the field, and to find the reasons behind the discrepancies. This Nordic seminar was organized in order to summarize the state-of-the-art within the field of chloride induced corrosion. Field studies were highlighted at the seminar. All participants were invited personally, and almost everyone made presentations at the seminar. This volume contains all the papers that were presented. Only a minor editing has been made of the original papers."
