The primary focus of this document is to provide a repository of corrosion test method summaries for use by engineers and owners who routinely specify and work with corrosion resistant reinforcement. Corrosion of embedded steel reinforcement is the leading cause of deterioration of reinforced concrete structures. Owners and engineers often need to evaluate the durability of reinforced concrete structures subject to corrosive environments, which requires a thorough understanding of material behavior, including the performance of the reinforcing steel.
