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)
concrete with calcium nitrite exhibiting a longer time to corrosion initiation and correspondingly higher chloride content in uncracked concrete (known as the critical chloride corrosion threshold) than reinforcement in concrete without calcium nitrite (Pyc et al. 1999; Bola and Newtson 2005; Xing et al. 2010). In addition to serving as a corrosion(More)
