CONT

The electrical resistivity of concrete is a very important parameter concerning determination of intensity of the initiated corrosion process. In concrete material with high electrical resistivity the corrosion process will be slow compared to concrete with low resistivity in which the current can easily pass between anode and cathode areas. Two different techniques, namely AC and DC measurements are used for determination of electrical resistivity. In these measurements both surface and embedded probes are applied. The FORCE Institute has developed and manufactured different resistivity probes based on two and four-electrodes systems.
