Abstract Concrete cylinders with an embedded reinforcing bar and different water cement ratios were cured for different periods and then exposed in a salt spray chamber (according to ISO-9227). Cylinders from the same batches were also exposed to a marine atmosphere for 24 months at a location 50 m from the shoreline. In both exposures the corrosion rate, the corrosion potential and the chloride content close to the reinforcing bars were monitored as a function of the exposure time, in order to ...
