AbstractThis paper presents the results of a five-year study on the field performance of two corrosion protection systems deployed on prestressed concrete bridge girders. The corrosion systems tested were: a galvanic cathodic protection (GCP) system and a concrete surface treatment. The anode materials of the GCP systems consisted of zinc (Zn), zinc-magnesium (Zn-Mg) and aluminum-zinc-indium (Al-Zn-In), and the concrete surface treatment was a combination of silane primer and acrylic top coating.
