asrm 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. Lecture Slides Our Products: For the latest corrosion mapping system from Proceq please take a look at the Profometer Corrosion. Single files can be opened and processed separately. 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.

This statistical presentation is the basis for an efficient interpretation of the half-cell potentials by the corrosion engineer.

Comments about specific points on the concrete structure can be placed directly in the c876-1 map. Carbon dioxide can cause corrosion astn by reducing the pH of the concrete. These factors, together with inadequate construction practices in difficult environmental conditions, lead to corrosion of the reinforcing steel. It enables the identification of concrete corrosion before it becomes visible and has caused damage.

However, the passive layer does not provide a perfect and c876-19 barrier in aggressive environments containing initiators of corrosion primarily aggressive ions like sulphates and chlorides, humidity, carbon dioxide, and oxygen [4]. It is often necessary to use other data such as chloride contents, depth of carbonation, delamination survey findings, rate of corrosion results, and environmental 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.


All specimens were placed in a 3.

RS interface, USB with adapter. Selectable grid with metric or imperial units. Readings are collected at a predetermined spacings automatically and stored. Six AA batteries, 1. Perth Head Office e This email address is being protected from spambots. In service conditions, the concrete covering the steel bars gives physical and chemical protection to the reinforcement. All graphics can be exported as bmp-files into external software for the generation of reports.

The program generates a potential map, a relative frequency and a cumulative frequency diagram and provides a chipping graph. The concrete cover provides an alkaline environment surrounding the steel, resulting in the formation of an oxide layer, called a passive film, which protects the steel from corrosion.

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. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Data collection and processing of test results comply with major industry standards:. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Concrete cover in excess of 3 in. Degradation of concrete structures by corrosion processes is a serious problem and has major economic implications [3]. Separately measured objects can be merged to a complete potential map. Sydney e This email address is being protected from spambots.

Based on the user defined threshold potentials that represent certain c76-91 of the structure, up to four characteristic potential intervals can be chosen. Corrosion of reinforced steel has two principal problems that affect the service life of concrete reinforced structures [2].


This is the result of the interaction between chemical and biological agents [1].

Reinforced concrete structures are exposed to. This enable the inspector to immediately mark on the concrete surface f876-91 areas of concern and to later down load the data for printing in a report.

The basic configuration of the electrical circuit is shown in Fig. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The results showed that reinforced concrete containing sugar cane bagasse ash has the lowest corrosion rates in comparison to reinforced concrete without the additive. Once the alkaline environment is destroyed, the protective layer of oxide on the steel surface is destroyed and corrosion may start.

Up to measurement values are displayed at a time in easy-to read grey-scale and a menu-driven approach facilitates simple operation using just nine keys. 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.

Introduction Corrosion is the loss of material and occurs when metals are exposed to the environment. 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.

If required, objects can be rotated and mirrored. Firstly, accurate field corrosion potential measurements aid in detecting corrosion in rebars. XY-grid settings must be equal.

Concrete surfaces that are coated or treated with sealers may not provide an acceptable electrical circuit. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.
