rebar corrosion

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Federal Highway Authority conducted corrosion tests on more than 50 
'types' of rebars in late 90's ; among the 10 'solid metallic' rebars
was one "CORROSION RESISTANT STEEL ALLOY BAR". Can any one give the full
chemical composition of the steel tested and how it performed ?

Earlier, the Building Research Establishment in UK had tested a whole lot
of rebars including a cor-ten type of weathering steel, which was
pronounced unsuitable in concrete. I wonder if FHWA tested something
