Cathodic Protection of Steel in Concrete
Paul M. Chess, Cathodic Protection International Aps., Denmark, Ed
The corrosion of the steel reinforcement in concrete caused by chloride intrusion is a problem affecting thousands of concrete structures throughout the world. This book provides the most comprehensive summary of the electrochemical techniques for treating steel corrosion to date. It contains an examination of the causes of corrosion and its accelerating rate and describes assessment methods. The practical techniques used to design a cathodic protection system are described as well as an assessment of the different types of anodes and power supplies available, their advantages and limitations. An essential guide for the engineer who wishes to understand and utilize this important technology. 1998, 208 pp.
