Computerised analysis of sulphate action on model concrete piles
MetadataShow full item record
Sulphate action severely affects the durability of marine structures. It is imperative to study precisely the effects of magnesium sulphate on pile foundations in the marine environment. In the present paper an attempt is made to assess and analyse the influence of magnesium sulphate on model reinforced concrete piles. The sulphate action on the corrosion rate of rebar in concrete has been distinctly studied through sophisticated computerised potentiodynamic technique. The corrosion of rebar has been evaluated on the basis of the relationship between corrosion current, potential, polarization resistance and rate of corrosion. The 0.2 percent concentration of sulphate has yielded maximum rate of corrosion. The potentiodynamic technique analysis appears to be reliable and rapid.
