Chaudhary, S K (2001) Investigation of Corrosion Affected Concrete Structures-A Systematic Approach. In: National Seminar on Corrosion and Its Prevention(NSCP-2001), 13-14, December, 2001, National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur.



Damage to concrete structure due to corrosion of rein-forcement is a matter of great importance for concrete technologist all over the world because it is directly related with serious risk to safety. The durability of concrete structure exposed to corrosive environment has not been to our expectation. Hence the need of hour is to investigate the corrosion affected concrete structures with great care and systematically. The results obtained from the various test methods should be interpreted with adequate caution so that the data can be made more mean-ingful. In this paper the author has made an attempt to present a systematic approach of investigation of corr-osion afrected concrete structures highlighting guide-lines for interpretation. Two case studies have also been presented.
