Scope

Newer materials are being introduced to the construction industry with high-performance attributes. Mechanics of structures built with such materials and construction technology involved thereof are subject matters of investigation leading to resilient infrastructure development, especially under extreme loading scenarios. Such cutting-edge technological advancements in engineered construction materials and their applications in real-life civil infrastructure projects will be addressed in this special issue of the Indian Concrete Journal (ICJ).

Guest Editor

Prof. Vasant Matsagar, Dogra Chair Professor, Department of Civil Engineering,
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi, India

ALL CONTRIBUTIONS WILL BE REVIEWED BY ICJ’S EXPERT EDITORIAL COMMITTEE
Submission Timelines : Wednesday, July 15, 2020.
Scope

Chloride-induced and carbonation-induced corrosion of embedded steel rebars and prestressing strands are major deterioration mechanisms in concrete structures. Such premature corrosion leads to significant reduction in the service life of concrete structures and a huge cost of corrosion of about 3% of GDP. Also, many repairs and strengthening works are failing prematurely because of the lack of adequate corrosion control measures - indicating a need for durability of repairs. This thematic issue of ICJ focuses on Corrosion and its Control in Reinforced Concrete Structures. Articles relevant to both conventionally reinforced and prestressed concrete systems will be covered. Manuscripts on comprehensive literature review, experimental/analytical studies and case studies, Point of View, etc. on the relevant topics including the following are invited.

  • Corrosion mechanisms in steel-cementitious systems

  • Corrosion-resistant steel reinforcement

  • Coated steel reinforcement

  • Corrosion inhibitors

  • SCMs and special cements and their impact on corrosion characteristics of steel

  • Corrosion measurement techniques

  • Service life estimation and applications

  • Durability-based design approaches for new construction

  • Durability of repair

  • Corrosion control / Electrochemical repair techniques (cathodic protection, electrochemical realkalization, chloride extraction, etc.)

  • Case studies
