Reaffirmed (with editorial changes) in 2019. Presents corrosion control guidelines that are applicable to existing atmospherically exposed structures made of concrete conventionally reinforced with carbon steel. These guidelines should be used primarily when repair or rehabilitation is being implemented because of deterioration resulting from the corrosion of steel reinforcement. Includes sections on Periodic Inspection and Routine Maintenance of reinforced-concrete structures (site survey, structural survey, repair options), Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Structures, and Corrosion Control Techniques and Repair Strategy. Corrosion control techniques that are described include surface treatments, removal of concrete, and electrochemical treatments, including ECE, ER, and cathodic protection.
Ceramic materials are becoming increasingly important in manufactured products and components
as well as possible uses in power plants, high energy batteries, gas turbines, heat exchangers, and
fuel cells. In many cases, the ceramic materials are exposed to highly aggressive service
environments such as those found in the manufacturing and processing of industrial chemicals in
which traditional metallic materials tend to be unusable because of extremely rapid corrosion.
Therefore, corrosion resistance is an increasingly important aspect of the performance of advanced
ceramics. While general corrosion of ceramic materials may occur, many real-world problems
involve localized corrosion and/or corrosion-influenced mechanical failure.
