Effect of Oxygen Ions Diffusion on Steel Corrosion in Concrete
Oxygen ions are the necessary condition for steel corrosion which occurs when the steel’s passive film is destroyed. Oxygen ions diffusion directly influences steel corrosion rate. The paper, starting from the steel corrosion mechanism, summarized the testing technology and the research progress of oxygen ions diffusion coefficient, analyzed the influencing factors and studied further the effect of oxygen ions diffusion on steel corrosion in concrete. The testing technology of oxygen ion diffusion coefficient is combined with the testing method of steel corrosion rate, and the relationship between oxygen ions diffusion coefficient and steel corrosion rate are established.
