The chloride content required for corrosion initiation of galvanized reinforcing bars is determined. The bars conform to ASTM A767, except that no chromate treatment was applied to allow the degree of hydrogen evolution for untreated bars to be evaluated. Test results, along with results for conventional (ASTM A615), low carbon chromium (ASTM A1035, MMFX),(More)
No. 5 and No. 10 bars are tested for bond strength in accordance with ASTM A944. For each bar size, the bond strength of bars with deformations that exceed the maximum spacing requirements in ASTM A615 is compared with the bond strength of bars that meet the spacing requirements. All bars exceed the requirements for minimum deformation height. Research(More)
Galvanized reinforcement is evaluated to determine the chloride content required for corrosion initiation. The bars conform to ASTM A 767, except that no chromate treatment was applied. Specimens containing the galvanized bars are subjected to Southern Exposure test conditions that are terminated upon corrosion initiation, after which the chloride content(More)
Acute pancreatitis (AP) is a common disease in the department of gastroenterology with variable severity, from being mild and self-limited to severe and fatal. The early diagnosis and accurate prediction of AP severity are of great importance. Our primary observation showed that fatty liver (FL) was frequently detected in patients with AP. In this(More)
