AASHTO T 277
Standard Method of Test for Electrical Indication of Concrete’s Ability to Resist Chloride Ion Penetration
|Publication Date:||1 January 2015|
This test method covers the determination of the electrical conductance of concrete to provide a rapid indication of its resistance to the penetration of chloride ions. This test method is applicable to types of concrete where correlations have been established between this test procedure and long-term chloride ponding procedures such as those described in T 259. Examples of such correlations are discussed in References 1 through 5.1
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
