Re: Embeded reinforcing steel in soil?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Gentlemen,

At first place why do you want to embed rebar in soil? What application it is intended for? Soil reinforcements are sometimes used to stabilize soil; but the reinforcements are in form of galvanized mesh.

Corrosion of rebars in soil would depend upon intensity of sulphate & chlorides in the soil. If the soil is reported to be not aggressive a galvanized mesh would perform better. Regards,

If I use reinforcing steel and embeded in soil, does anyone know what happen to this reinforcing rebar? Will it rush away? or I shall use paint in this case?
