Corrosion of Steel in Concrete Structures, Second Edition covers the corrosion of steel reinforced concrete, along with a variety of new topics and future trends. Sections discuss the theoretical concepts of corrosion of steel in concrete structures, analyze the variety of reinforcing materials and concrete, including stainless steel and galvanized steel, cover measurements and evaluations, such as electrochemical techniques and acoustic emission, review protection and maintenance methods, and analyze modeling. Topics covered include the steel/concrete interface, the influence of steel microstructure on its corrosion in concrete, data collection and analysis on chloride-induced corrosion, corrosion detection devices, and new advances.

Key Features

  • Presents comprehensive coverage on the corrosion of steel bars in concrete, investigating the range of reinforcing materials and types of concrete
  • Introduces the latest measuring methods, data collection and advanced modeling techniques
  • Covers a range of new and emerging topics, such as the concept of chloride threshold value, concrete permeability and chloride diffusion, the role of steel microstructure, and innovations in corrosion detection devices


Academic researchers, practitioners and engineers interested in concrete durability, materials scientists and civil engineers, postgraduate students working in materials science, chemical and civil engineering programs
