The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. However, the passive layer does not provide a perfect and permanent barrier in aggressive environments containing initiators of corrosion primarily aggressive ions like sulphates and chlorides, humidity, carbon dioxide, and oxygen [4].

Lecture Slides Our Products: XY-grid settings must be equal. Firstly, accurate field corrosion potential measurements aid in detecting corrosion in rebars. Additives, such as fly ash, microsilica, rice husk ash, and cane sugar ashm ash, have a size breakdown that allows the reduction of concrete pore size and, consequently, may reduce the corrosion process.

Introduction Corrosion is the loss of material and occurs when metals are exposed to the environment. Reinforced concrete structures are exposed to. Corrosion of steel in concrete is an electrochemical process. The results showed that reinforced concrete containing sugar cane bagasse ash has the lowest corrosion rates asgm comparison to reinforced concrete without the additive.

Concrete surfaces that are coated or treated with sealers may not provide an acceptable electrical circuit. Concrete surface in building interiors and desert environments lose aetm moisture so that the concrete resistivity becomes so high that special testing techniques c87-91 covered in this test method may be required see 5.

Corrosion of reinforced steel has two principal problems that affect the service life of concrete reinforced structures [2].


Concrete is a porous material and the ingress of water, oxygen, and aggressive ions, such as chlorides, can cause the passive layer on reinforced steel to break down.

Sydney e This email address is being protected from spambots. Based on the user defined threshold potentials that represent certain conditions of the structure, up to four characteristic potential intervals can be chosen. This statistical presentation is the basis for an efficient interpretation of the half-cell potentials by the corrosion asstm.

Degradation of concrete structures by corrosion processes is a serious problem and has major economic implications [3]. RS interface, USB with adapter. This enable the inspector to immediately mark on the concrete surface the areas of concern and to later down load the data for printing in a report.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Readings are collected at a predetermined spacings automatically and stored. This is the result of the interaction between chemical and biological agents [1].

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. All graphics can be exported as bmp-files into external software for the generation of reports.

Six AA batteries, 1. It c87-91 often necessary to use other data such as chloride contents, depth of carbonation, delamination survey findings, rate of corrosion c8776-91, and environmental exposure conditions, in addition to corrosion potential measurements, to c876-1 conclusions concerning corrosion activity of embedded steel and its probable effect on the service life of a structure.

In service conditions, the concrete covering the steel bars gives physical and chemical protection to the reinforcement. Data collection and processing of test results comply with major industry standards:. This early detection can be a key in preventing c8776-91 unanticipated structural failure. A potential field can be measured on the concrete surface by the use of an electrode, known as a half-cell, and a high-impedance voltmeter.


Up to measurement values are displayed at a time in easy-to read grey-scale and a menu-driven approach facilitates simple operation using just nine keys.

For the latest corrosion mapping system from Proceq please take a look at the Profometer Corrosion. Concrete cover in excess of 3 in. All specimens were placed in a 3. The concrete cover provides an alkaline environment surrounding the steel, resulting in the formation of an oxide layer, called a passive film, which protects the steel from corrosion. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the c87691.

Once the alkaline environment is destroyed, the protective layer of oxide on the steel surface is destroyed and corrosion may start. Separately measured objects can be merged to a complete potential map.

It enables the identification of concrete corrosion before it becomes visible and has caused astk. Selectable grid with metric or imperial units. Carbon dioxide can cause corrosion primarily by reducing the pH of the asgm. Comments about specific points on the concrete structure can be placed directly in the potential map. These factors, together with inadequate construction practices in difficult environmental conditions, lead to corrosion of the reinforcing steel.

The basic configuration of the electrical circuit is shown in Fig.

The program generates a potential map, a relative frequency and a cumulative frequency diagram and provides a chipping graph. Brisbane e This email address is being protected from spambots.
