AbstractThis paper describes an on-going consortium established two years ago to evaluate the ong term field performance of proprietary corrosion inhibiting systems for the rehabilitation of reinforced concrete bridges. The field monitoring consists of annual visits to the bridge to conduct visual inspections and corrosion surveys of the traffice-exposed face of the reconstructed bridge parapet. Further, innovative remote wireless systems using cellular phone technology are used to record vital information on the concrete parapet. The field evaluation is also supported by lab experiments which consist of tests on cores taken annually from the bridge parapet and of an accelerated corrosion lab study on field-cast reinforced concrete prisms.
