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 ...
