Detecting Invisible Corrosion in Concrete Concrete ...

Corrosion of reinforcing steel is an electrochemical process: that is, both a flow of electricity and a chemical change are involved. Detecting and measuring this electric current flow helps us assess the degree of unseen corrosion activity. To record this information, half cell procedures standardized in ASTM C 976 have been developed.
