Use of stainless steel as concrete reinforcement

Irina Stipanović Oslaković, Dubravka Bjegović

Abstract

Starting from the impact the steel corrosion has on the durability and maintenance costs of reinforced- concrete structures, the authors describe how steel corrosion can be prevented by using reinforcement made of certain types of stainless steel that are resistant to corrosion. Results obtained by testing corrosion resistance of stainless steel and carbon steel are presented, and recommendations are given for the use of stainless steel as reinforcement depending on exposure category of a particular reinforced structure.
