Modelling of reinforcement corrosion—simulation and time dependence

J. Harnisch, J. Warkus & M. Raupach

The macro cell corrosion of steel in concrete can be described by means of an equivalent circuit diagram where, according to Ohm’s law, the driving Voltage ΔΕ is consumed by three resistances, the anodic and cathodic polarization resistances as well as the electrolytic resistance of the electrolyte, see equation 1.
