Stray current is essentially an electrical current “leakage” from metal conductors and electrical installations. When it flows through cement-based systems, electrical energy is converted to thermal energy that causes increasing temperature due to Joule heating phenomena. The aim of this paper is to shed light on the influence of electrical...

The level of free chloride concentration in reinforced concrete structures essentially determines the onset of steel corrosion initiation and further propagation. One of the well-known methods for monitoring free chloride concentration is using silver/silver chloride electrodes (Ag/AgCl). These electrodes are sensitive mainly to chloride ions...

Chloride-induced corrosion of steel reinforcement is one of the major threats to durability of reinforced concrete structures in aggressive environmental conditions. When the steel reinforcement starts to corrode, structures gradually lose integrity and service life is shortened. Cracks are inevitable in practice and they facilitate ingress of...
