[book review] One hundred years ago Knudson showed that the passage of a small current through the reinforcement in concrete would cause corrosion. His opinion that stray currents were the cause of the problem was shared by most researchers at the time but within a few years Rosa et al. had concluded that ‘the presence of chlorides always facilitated trouble’. In this book John Broomfield brings the reader right up to date with the latest solutions to the problem and the codes and standards that relate to them.
