Although reinforcement corrosion is a well-known issue, which are the locations of the steel/concrete interface most sensitive to pitting corrosion is still an unclear issue. In this study, X-ray computed tomography is used to characterize eight 20-years-old reinforced concrete cores naturally deteriorated due to chloride-induced corrosion. The...

Although corrosion of reinforcement is a well-known issue for the construction industry, there are still open questions about some fundamentals of corrosion in reinforced concrete. These points include, among others, which are the most sensitive locations of the steel/concrete interface for pitting corrosion to initiate and to propagate. In this...

Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) is a durability problem that affects numerous concrete structures woridwide. As the reaction progresses. it might lead to deleterious expansion and cracking. The addition of lithium into fresh concrete is already acknowledged as a preventive method. In existing structures, however, lithium would need to be driven...
