Enhancing the Functionality of Zinc Anodes in Repaired Concrete/Material

Mitigating the corrosion of reinforcement in RC structures is a critical issue for Canada’s civil infrastructure, especially with the continual use of deicing salts during winter. This pilot study will provide crucial information on the functional range of resistivity of repair materials/concretes and anode spacing, which will optimize the efficiency of an economical technology (zinc anodes) at protecting embedded reinforcement from the risk of corrosion.
