Linear Polarisation Resistance (LPR) can provide a direct evaluation of the instantaneous rate of corrosion. However it has the disadvantage of requiring a localised breakout of the concrete cover to provide an electrical connection to the steel reinforcement. This paper describes an adaptation of the LPR method and the four-point Wenner resistivity method to give an evaluation of the rate of steel corrosion without the requirement for a direct electrical connection to the steel reinforcement… CONTINUE READING
