Performance Evaluation of Prestressing Strands for Concrete Bridges With Chloride Contaminated Grout
A research program will be conducted to obtain a preliminary estimate of a chloride threshold value for corrosion initiation for prestressing strands.
The key project objective is to conduct research on prestressing strands grouted with samples of cement grout containing different levels of chloride to obtain a preliminary estimate of a chloride threshold value for corrosion initiation.
