Abstract

This work presents the differences in the available Rapid Chloride Migration (RCM) test guidelines, and their influence on the values of the chloride migration coefficients DRCM, obtained following these guidelines. It is shown that the differences between the guidelines are significant and concern the sample pre-conditioning, applied electrolytes and voltages. Remarkable variations in the obtained DRCM values are reported between the guidelines (up to 35%). Therefore, the direct comparison of the DRCM is allowed only within the coefficients obtained following the same guideline. Modifications of the procedure of some guidelines are proposed in order to make them more sound and uniform with each other.
