Materials Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Corrosion of Steel in Concrete
Prevention, Diagnosis, Repair
edited by Luca Bertolini

Corrosion of Steel in Concrete focuses on the chloride and carbonation induced corrosion of steel in concrete, presenting transport mechanisms and electrochemical concepts. Other types of corrosion of steel and degradation of concrete are also treated.

The main emphasis lies on design and execution aspects related to durability of new and existing structures. New methods and materials for preventative measures, condition assessment and repair techniques are discussed.

Corrosion of Steel in Concrete is an invaluable reference for any engineer and materials scientist involved in research and practice of corrosion protection, rehabilitation and maintenance of reinforced concrete structures and components. Owners, designers and contractors will profit by this updated state of the art.
