The Study for Non-Destructive Quantification Method of Reinforcement Corrosion Degree Based on Electrochemical Detection and Finite Analysis Technology
Corrosion of reinforcement is one of the most important factors in causing the damage to reinforced concrete structure and the inestimable economic loss and major security risk to a large number buildings with reinforced concrete structure. In order to overcome the disadvantage of previous service reinforcement which can only be carried out by sizing detection not quantification, this paper puts forward to a new method to evaluate non-destructive quantification of corrosion degree of reinforcement based on the combination of electrochemical detection and finite element analysis, thus the effective corresponding can be produced among reinforcement corrosion rate, potential signal and reinforced concrete structural distortion. The relation among corrosion current density and potential characteristic parameters as well as corrosion ratio has been established. Through the finite element analysis technique and the combination with the case analysis, the relation model between the strain rate of concrete beams and detection signal has been built; the forecasted empirical formula for change of strain value of tested reinforcement has been given And by means of verifying the reliability of model with data of previous experiments, the quantitative calculation of reinforcement corrosion degree has been realized, which lays the technical foundation for the research and development of non-destructive detection equipment of corrosion of reinforcement.
