Single files can be opened and processed separately. Concrete surfaces that are coated or treated with sealers may not provide an acceptable electrical circuit.

For the latest corrosion mapping system from Proceq please take a look at the Profometer Corrosion. Six AA batteries, 1. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.


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

The basic configuration of the electrical circuit is shown in Fig. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Concrete cover in excess of 3 in. Based on the user defined threshold potentials that represent certain conditions of the structure, up to four characteristic potential intervals can be chosen.

Once the alkaline environment is destroyed, the protective layer of oxide on the steel surface is destroyed and corrosion may start. Selectable grid with metric or imperial units. In service conditions, the concrete covering the steel bars gives physical c876-991 chemical protection to the reinforcement.

These factors, together d876-91 inadequate construction practices in c76-91 environmental conditions, lead to corrosion of the reinforcing steel. 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.

This early detection can be a key in preventing an unanticipated structural failure. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

It c8766-91 often necessary to use other data such as chloride contents, depth of carbonation, delamination survey findings, rate of corrosion results, and environmental exposure conditions, in addition to corrosion potential measurements, to formulate conclusions concerning corrosion activity of embedded steel and its probable effect on the ast life of a structure.

Introduction Corrosion is the loss of material and occurs when metals are exposed to the environment. 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.

Concrete surface in building interiors and desert environments lose sufficient moisture so that the concrete resistivity becomes so high that special testing techniques not covered in this test method may be required see 5.

Corrosion of reinforced steel has two atsm problems that affect the service life of concrete reinforced structures [2]. XY-grid settings must be equal. Lecture Slides Our Products: Readings are collected aetm a predetermined spacings automatically and stored. This statistical presentation is the basis for an efficient interpretation of the half-cell potentials by the corrosion engineer. All graphics can be exported as bmp-files into external software for the generation of reports.

It enables the identification of concrete corrosion before it astk visible and has caused damage. Additives, such as fly ash, microsilica, rice husk ash, and cane sugar bagasse ash, have a size breakdown that allows the reduction of asttm pore size and, consequently, may reduce the corrosion process.

RS interface, USB with adapter. 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. If required, objects can be rotated and mirrored. Degradation of concrete structures by corrosion processes is a serious problem and has major economic implications [3].

All specimens were placed in a 3. This is the result of the interaction between chemical and biological agents [1]. 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]. The program generates a potential c876-1, a relative frequency and a cumulative frequency diagram and provides a chipping graph.

Comments about specific points on the concrete structure can be placed directly in the potential map. Carbon dioxide can cause corrosion primarily by reducing the pH of the concrete.

Separately measured objects can be merged to a complete potential map.

The results showed that reinforced concrete containing sugar cane bagasse ash has the lowest corrosion rates in comparison to reinforced concrete without the additive.
