Abstract :

Corrosion monitoring systems consisting of linear polarisation, concrete resistivity and other probes have been installed in new structures to monitor durability and in existing structures to evaluate rehabilitation strategies such as corrosion inhibitor application and patch repairs. The types of sensors used, data collection techniques, results and interpretation are discussed.
