Electrochemical Realkalization and Chloride Extraction for Reinforced Concrete

Published by: 2017-02-14 / 2017-02-14 / 24 pages
This standard addresses corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete, a serious problem throughout the world in parking structures, bridges and roadways, buildings, sanitary and water facilities, marine structures, concrete pipe, storage facilities, and other structures. This corrosion is directly attributable to the presence of significant amounts of aggressive substances at the steel surface. This standard provides procedures to control corrosion of conventional reinforcing steel in Portland cement concrete structures through the application of chloride extraction or realkalization. These electrochemical techniques are related to the use of impressed current cathodic protection of steel in concrete, as described in NACE SP0290.

Standard Test Method – Evaluation of Organic-Based Conductive Coating Anodes for Use on Atmospherically Exposed Reinforced Concrete

Published by: 2016-11-05 / 2016-11-05 / 12 pages
This standard provides a test method to evaluate coatings containing conductive carbon pigmentation for use as an anode on atmospherically exposed reinforced concrete. These coatings are commonly applied to steel-reinforced concrete surfaces for the purpose of supplying cathodic protection (CP) current to the embedded steel. The coating systems used for this purpose are intended to serve as an anode material and are not intended to provide a protective barrier coating to the concrete.

This standard is intended for use by consultants, suppliers, and users of CP systems intended to reduce corrosion of embedded steel in atmospherically exposed reinforced concrete. This standard is expected to be used primarily to qualify coatings containing conductive carbon pigmentation as an anode material, rather than as a quality control procedure.

Standard for Hull Roughness Measurements on Ship Hulls

Published by: 2016-07-25 / 2016-07-25 / 8 pages
This standard defines the methodology of measuring hull roughness of vessels in dry-dock. This standard does not mention the type of instrument/gauge for such measurements. This standard is limited to a methodology–no interpretation of the results obtained is presented.



One of the factors affecting a ship’s performance and fuel consumption is the roughness of its foul-free underwater hull. The condition and type of paint system used may have a major influence on hull roughness and ship performance. Hull roughness has a major impact on vessel fuel efficiency and exhaust emissions. This standard focuses on the mechanical roughness of the hull. A roughness survey is used to arrive at a measured value to determine the added friction drag caused by the roughened, but foul-free, coated surface.

Slow Strain Rate Test Method for Screening Corrosion-Resistant Alloys for Stress Corrosion Cracking in Sour Oilfield Service

Published by: 2016-01-06 / 2016-01-06 / 24 pages
Provides a standardized method for screening corrosion-resistant alloys (CRAs) for use in oilfield production environments. The SSR test, which is relatively short in duration, incorporates a slow, dynamic strain applied at a constant extension rate. This results in acceleration of the initiation of cracking in susceptible materials, thereby simulating rather severe conditions. The test is useful in evaluating stainless steels and nickel-based alloys for resistance to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in simulated oilfield production environments at elevated temperatures.
