AbstractThe rapid chloride permeability test (AASHTO T277/ASTM C 1202) and other chloride permeability testing methods are critically reviewed. The basic concepts of concrete permeabilityand conductivity are also discussed. An attempt at clarification and resolution of some issues is made. A faster and simpler alternative testing method to the AASHTO T277/ASTM C 1202based on the a~c impedance techniques is proposed. It provides at least an equivalent indication of the concrete permeability with respect to AASHTO T277/ASTMC 1202 and is without several shortcomings characteristic at' the current methods.
