Embedded Sensors for Corrosion Monitoring of Existing Reinforced Concrete Structures
In this work the performance of two surface treatments and the efficiency of a corrosion inhibitor were evaluated, in the control of steel corrosion in concrete induced by chlorides, through measurements of galvanic current and polarization resistance applied to embedded sensors fixed in existing concrete using different methodologies. From the results obtained the use of the different embedded sensors in the measurement of corrosion rate is discussed aiming the development of new systems for permanent evaluation of the on site performance of products for repairing reinforced concrete structures affected by reinforcement corrosion.
