In this paper the reliability of the electrical ASTM C1202 RCPT and resistivity tests was studied to assess the chloride resistance of GGBS mixtures with different levels of replacement. In order to achieve this, a computational model was used to investigate the influence of the level of GGBS replacement on the electrical assessment of the chloride related transport properties. Results of the experiments and the simulations showed that the resistivity and the total electric charge passed can be used as indirect measures of the chloride resistance in OPC-GGBS mixes.
