This paper was researched with the help of Giatec’s iCOR® device, a non-destructive concrete testing tool for detailed corrosion evaluation of reinforced concrete structures, half-cell potentional, and in-situ electrical resistivity of concrete.

Abstract
The heated bar effect on the corrosion rate, corrosion potential and resistivity of partially carbonated concrete is discussed in this paper. The potential use of pulverized fuel ash (PFA) as a substitute for cement to mitigate the heated bar effect is explored. It is found that the heated bar effect can lead to an increase in the corrosion level. The moisture content of concrete noticeably affects the heated bar effect on the corrosion performance of partially carbonated concrete.
