Corrosion in Concrete

  • Xiaoge Gregory Zhang


Steel-reinforced concrete is a widely used construction material. In the absence of certain deleterious factors and agents, steel does not rust in the concrete environment. However, in practice, the entrance of moisture, salts, and oxygen by diffusion or through pores or hairline cracks in the concrete may cause the steel to corrode and may eventually result in cracking and spalling of the concrete by the expansive force of the corrosion products [269, 1219].
