Calculation of the Surface Chloride and Estimation for the Soundness of Embedded Rebar by Using Colorimetric Distinction Method Lee, Mun-Hwan; Lee, Jin-Woo;
As it is important to measure the degree of the deterioration and predict service life caused by chloride in concrete structure the methods of measuring chloride in the concrete is raised important problems. This study is to set a new standard for using of the colorimetric method through grasping the character of the colorimetric distinction method, and measuring the chloride content at the place discolored. Also, to predict chloride content around embeded bar and time reaching limit chloride concentration through measuring the chloride content of concrete surface by colorimetric distinction method and this study presents the new concept of concrete degradation and diagnosis of the durability by salt damage. According the results, it is possible to use colorimetric distinction method as simplified measurement to measure the fixed quantity of the chloride concentration. What is more, it would make calculation of concrete surface chloride had a wide fluctuation at the general environment extended. Also, it would be make estimating durability of reinforced concrete structures applied to the basic data.
