Quantifying the Duration of the Corrosion Propagation Stage in Stainless Steel Reinforcement

The objectives of this project are to: (1) Develop a rational quantitative estimate of the duration of the corrosion propagation stage of concrete reinforced with stainless steel (SS) in current and anticipated Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) practice, establishing alternative corrosion monitoring methods if needed. (2) Apply the findings as inputs to damage function models, to determine how any resulting added durability credit can be used to optimize materials and design options.
