INFLUENCE OF ADHESION AT STEEL/MORTAR INTERFACE ON CORROSION CHARACTERISTICS OF REINFORCING STEEL By

Abstract

The mechanism of corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete is discussed based on electrochemical and electron microscopy observations. The importance of calcium hydroxide precipitation on the steel surf ace in the steel/mortar interface is evaluated by placing filter paper around reinforcing steel bar specimens prior to casting in mortar, thus preventing… (More)
