AbstractNine commercially available corrosion-inhibiting systems including concrete admixtures, reinforcing steel coatings, and/or concrete surface coatings/sealers for use in concrete structures, were evaluated in electrochemical cells and on bridge barrier walls by accelerated methods and actual field conditions. The laboratory investigation included the assessment of the effectiveness of corrosion inhibiting concrete admixtures and rebar coatings in delaying or reducing steel corrosion by measurements of chloride thresholds and corrosion rates. The field evaluation consisted of the measurements of half-cell potential and corrosion rate of the steel reinforcement of concrete barrier walls, which had specially designed rebar ladders embedded in the concrete with thin cover depths, in order to reduce the time needed for chlorides to reach the surface of the reinforcing steel.
