Corrosion of Embedded Materials

Corrosion of embedded metals in concrete can be greatly reduced by placing crackfree concrete with low permeability and sufficient concrete cover. Lowpermeability concrete can be attained by decreasing the water to cementitious materials ratio of the concrete and the use of pozzolans and slag.
