Abstract :
We studied the coupled effects of freeze–thaw (F–T) cycling and chloride on corrosion of rebar in concrete. An ordinary concrete and a ternary-binder concrete were immersed in 3.5 wt.% NaCl solution and endured up to 200 F–T cycles. We found: (1) the risk of corrosion of steel reinforcement in concrete remained in the “passive region”, even with increasing F–T cycling, although serious spalling occurred for all concrete specimens; (2) factors that reduce rebar corrosion include lower temperatures, non-wetting phase percolation which blocks harmful chloride penetration, and insufficient oxygen supply; and (3) blends do not seem to improve the resistance to reinforcement corrosion.
