Abstract

Reinforced concrete service-life depends on a transport rate of corrosion stimulators, especially chlorides, towards the reinforcement through concrete cover layer. Traditional migration tests are able to state the effective diffusion coefficient; however they do not provide the information about the microstructure and its development in time. The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy was applied to study the microstructure of ultra-high performance concrete, ordinary Portland cement concrete and pore concrete. The porosity and electrochemical parameters were related to water and chloride permeability.

Keywords: EIS, UHPC, chloride diffusion, porosity
