Investigation into the Contributing Factors to the Corrosion of Steel Reinforced Concrete Structures at Elevations Greater than 12 Feet Above the mean High Water Line

Assess if atmospherically deposited chlorides could cause corrosion of the reinforcing steel at elevations greater than 12 ft above the mean high water line. And if yes, for what type of concrete compositions. Better understand the atmospherically deposited chlorides that reach a substructure at elevations higher than 12 ft above the mean high water line. Gain understanding on what (other than atmospherically deposited chlorides) factors contribute to the corrosion of steel reinforced concrete structures at elevations greater than 12 feet above the mean high water line.
