Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction
This resource is a technical guide to designing stainless steel reinforced concrete. For suitable grades of stainless steel, information is given on the chemical composition and corrosion properties, particularly resistance to chloride attack and carbonation and mechanical properties (stress-strain relationship, heat resistance and fatigue). Guidance on handling, installation and welding stainless steel reinforcing bar is also given. The optimum concrete mix is also discussed with relation to preventing corrosion.
