Bridge Deck Service Life Prediction and Costs
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2007-12-01)
The service life of Virginia's concrete bridge decks is generally controlled by chloride-induced corrosion of the reinforcing steel as a result of the application of winter maintenance deicing salts. A chloride corrosion ...
Parameters Governing the Corrosion Protection Efficiency of Fusion-Bonded Epoxy Coatings on Reinforcing Steel
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2008-01-01)
The purpose of this study was to investigate various epoxy coating and exposure parameters to determine their effects on the corrosion of reinforcing steel. The parameters investigated were: chloride content at the bar ...
Corrosion Protection Service Life of Epoxy-Coated Reinforcing Steel in Virginia Bridge Decks
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2003-09-01)
The corrosion protection service life extension provided by epoxy-coated reinforcement (ECR) was determined by comparing ECR and bare steel bars from 10 Virginia bridge decks built between 1981 and 1995. The objective was ...
Summary Report on the Performance of Epoxy-Coated Reinforcing Steel in Virginia
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2006-06-01)
From 1992 to 2006, the Virginia Transportation Research Council and its contract researchers conducted a long-term systematic series of investigations to evaluate the corrosion protection effectiveness of epoxy-coated ...
