1 .1 This recommended practice presents corrosion control guidelines that are applicable to structures made of reinforced portland cement concrete. These guidelines should be used to develop specifications for steel reinforced concrete structures. Although many of the recommendations in this document are applicable to prestressed concrete structures, it does not fully address this type of reinforcing system. Because of the concrete damage caused by the corrosion products formed on reinforcing steel, the architectengineer must consider certain corrosion criteria during the design of structure. Design and construction considerations should be based on good engineering practices to eliminate conditions conducive to corrosion. Tests of soil and water should include but not necessarily be limited to pH, resistivity, chlorides, sulfates, sulfides, and bacteria. 1.2 This standard does not designate specific design practices for the control of corrosion because the complexity of corrosion mechanisms in individual structures. This requires tne expertise of a qualified Professional Engineer or qualified NACE  Corrosion Specialist during the design phase 1.3 When the architect-engineer considers the corrosion of reinforcing steel to be a potential problem, provisions should be made for a cost-effective corrosion control.
