Abstract

The penetration of chlorides in concrete is the main reason for the beginning of corrosion in reinforced concrete structures exposed to a marine environment, reducing their service life. This article proposes correlations between the surface chloride content (Cs) of Fick’s model and the ambient factor (kCl) of a resistivity model. Literature data for three types of cement were used to simulate chloride diffusivity: (1) CEM I 52.5 R; (2) CEM II/A-P 42.5 R (with 6%–20% of pozzolans); and (3) CEM type II (with 12% of pozzolans and 8% of silica fume). Concretes containing these cements were analyzed for different environmental conditions: atmosphere zone, seawater immersion, and tidal/splash zones. The surface chloride contents were determined by a combination of Fick’s and resistivity models. In this article, it was noticed that the estimated Cs value varies with the exposure class from 0.484% to 0.644% (total chloride concentration by weight of cement). An equation has been proposed to correlate Cs with the ambient factor kCl of the resistivity model.
