EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Corrosion of reinforcing steel is now recognized as the major cause of degradation of concrete structures in many parts of the world. Despite this, infrastructure expenditure is being unreasonably decreased by sequestration and the incredible shrinking discretionary budget. All components of our infrastructure including highways, airports, water supply, waste treatment, energy supply, and power generation require significant investment and are subjected to degradation by corrosion, which significantly reduces the service life, reliability, functionality of structures and equipment, and safety. Corrosion of Steel in Concrete Structures provides a comprehensive review of the subject, in addition to recent advances in research and technological developments, from reinforcing materials to measurement techniques and modelling. This book contains not only all the important aspects in the field of corrosion of steel reinforced concrete but also discusses new topics and future trends. Part One of the book tackles theoretical concepts of corrosion of steel in concrete structures. The second part moves on to analyse the variety of reinforcing materials and concrete, including stainless steel and galvanized steel. Part Three covers measurements and evaluations, such as electrochemical techniques and acoustic emission. Part Four reviews protection and maintenance methods, whilst the final section analyses modelling, latest developments and future trends in the field. The book is essential reading for researchers, practitioners and engineers who are involved in materials characterisation and corrosion of steel in concrete structures. Provides comprehensive coverage on a broad range of topics related to the corrosion of steel bars in concrete Discusses the latest measuring methods and advanced modeling techniques Reviews the range of reinforcing materials and types of concrete

An overview of current monitoring techniques together with a discussion of practical applications and current numerical methods that simulate the corrosion process provides the civil and structural engineer with an invaluable guide to best practice when it comes to design aimed at minimizing the effects of corrosion in concrete. The corrosion protective properties of concrete and modified cements are also discussed. The most frequently used stainless steels are examined together with an analysis of their reinforcement properties. Special attention is given to their handling and their welding requirements and the economics of their use. A comprehensive overview of surface treatments and corrosion inhibitors is presented alongside their practical applications as well as detailed coverage of electrochemical protection and maintenance techniques.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This Digest is in three Parts. Part 1 examines the durability of steel in concrete. With Part 2 on investigation and assessment, and Part 3 on protection and remedial work, it sets out the basic principles for all those concerned with the design and maintenance of durable concrete structures: owners, tenants on repairing leases, architects, surveyors, engineers, material scientists and contractors. It also examines existing standards of construction and the lessons learned from the investigation of cases of corrosion in concrete. This part of the Digest, Part 1, explains the physical, chemical and electrochemical processes involved in the deterioration of reinforced concrete by corrosion; it summarises the mechanisms underlying protection, considers issues associated with the durability management of existing structures, and reviews best practice in designing and specifying reinforced and prestressed concrete for new structures to achieve durable whole-life performance. Part 2 considers how corrosion-induced deterioration in existing steel reinforced concrete structures is assessed and diagnosed. Part 3 describes the repair and protection of concrete structures subject to corrosion damage, or which are expected to need measures to minimise future damage or deterioration. Concrete durability is an area which is undergoing rapid technical development and change; this Digest describes future developments that are expected to have a major influence on the approaches and methodologies in this field. Digests 263, 264 and 265 are withdrawn.

Corrosion And Its Consequences For Reinforced Concrete Structures

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book serves as an indispensable guide for engineers, scientists and researchers, exploring the fundamental aspects of corrosion in reinforced concrete. Its originality lies in the coupling between the reinforcement corrosion of reinforced concrete and its mechanical behavior.The authors describe the specific theoretical foundations of the corrosion of steel in concrete and its interactions with the structural aspects, including service cracking and defects in the placement of concrete. The book contains a study of the mechanisms of degradation of the mechanical behavior of reinforcements and the reinforced concrete composite, such as reduction of ductility, bearing capacity, redistribution of efforts by formation of plastic hinges and increase in the beam deflection in service. A diagnostic method based on corrosion-induced crack detection is presented in the book, and then paired with a recalculation method which allows us to predict the different aspects of the residual mechanical behavior. Several end-of-life ELS and ELU criteria are described, and the authors propose an approach to estimate the residual lifetime. Finally, the book presents the cathodic protection that allows the progression of corrosion to be contained within the corroded structures. As well as academics, this book is aimed at civil engineers who are faced with the issue of corrosion in aging structures. Explores corrosion in concrete Examines the influence of pre-cracks on corrosion Discusses corrosion diagnostics and corrosion-induced cracks Presents residual mechanical properties of corroded structures: effect of corrosion on steel behavior, load-bearing capacity, yielding capacity, deflection of corroded beams and the effect of corrosion on bond Provides repair and maintenance considerations: cathodic protection and carbon fiber reinforced polymer used to strengthen and restore bearing capacity

Techniques To Assess The Corrosion Activity Of Steel Reinforced Concrete Structures

Publisher: ASTM International
Release Date: 1996
Pages: 192
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Whatever his name or alias at the moment—Henry McCarty, Henry Antrim, Kid Antrim, Billy Bonney—people always called him the Kid. Not until his final month did anyone call him Billy the Kid. Newspapers pictured him as a king of outlaws; and his highly publicized capture, trial, escape, and end fixed his image in the public mind for all time. He was only twenty-one years old when a bullet from Sheriff Pat Garett’s six-shooter killed him on July 14, 1881. Within a year Billy the Kid became the subject of five dime-novel “biographies” as well as Garett’s ghost-written account, and that was just the beginning. Robert M. Utley does what countless books, movies, television shows, musical compositions, and paintings have failed to do: he successfully strips off the veneer of legendry to expose the reality of Billy the Kid. Using previously untapped sources, he presents an engrossing story—the most complete and accurate ever—of a youthful hoodlum and sometime killer who found his calling in New Mexico’s bloody power struggle known as the Lincoln County War. In unmasking the legend Utley also tells us much about our heritage of frontier vigilantism and violence.
