Abstract

In this study the corrosion performance of the steel embedded in the concrete produced by using three different types of cement (CEM II/B-M (P-L) 32.5 R. CEM I 42.5 R and CEM I 52.5 R) was investigated. 300 kg/m(3) and 375 kg/m(3) dosages of the cement with (0, 10 and 20) % of fly-ash (FA) replacements of cement were used to produce the concretes. These concretes were cured for 28 d and 180 d. The mechanical properties of the concretes were determined and the corrosion performances of the reinforced-concrete specimens were determined using the impressed voltage test. After the impressed voltage test weight losses occurred because of the corrosion that was determined. The results of this study show that using composite cement and an FA replacement of the cement are useful in combating corrosion.
