Standard Method of Test for Resistance of Concrete to Chloride Ion Penetration

active, Most Current
Organization: AASHTO
Publication Date: 1 January 2002
Status: active
Page Count: 4
scope:

This method covers the determination of the resistance of concrete specimens to the penetration of chloride ion. It is intended for use in determining the effects of variations in the properties of concrete on the resistance of the concrete to chloride ion penetration. Variations in the concrete may include, but are not limited to, changes in the cement type and content, water/cement ratio, aggregate type and proportions, admixtures, treatments, curing, and consolidation. This test method is not intended to provide a quantitative measure of the length of service that may be expected from a specific type of concrete.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the preferred standard.

The quality of the results produced by this standard are dependent on the competence of the personnel performing the procedure and the capability, calibration, and maintenance of the equipment used. Agencies that meet the criteria of R 18 are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing/sampling/inspection/etc. Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with R 18 alone does not completely assure reliable results. Reliable results depend on many factors; following the suggestions of R 18 or some similar acceptable guideline provides a means of evaluating and controlling some of those factors.
