AbstractThe modern approach of designing structures includes a careful analysis the long-term durability. The escalation of the replacement costs of structures and the growing emphasis of life-cycle cost rather than first cost are forcing engineers to become durability conscious. Although the combination of concrete and reinforcing steel has been regarded as an optimal one, the lack of durability of some reinforced concrete structures has become a topic of great concern, since the corrosion of steel embedded in concrete is the major cause of the deterioration of concrete structures. This article presents a brief overview about the nondestructive measurement methods for corrosion, with special emphasis on the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy technique and on the development of a new surface-based measurement method (SMM).
