Recommendations

Over 200 RILEM Technical Recommendations have been produced by RILEM Technical Committees. Many of these recommendations have been adopted in research and practice, and are used by international standardisation bodies, as a basis for their work.

All RILEM recommendations reflect the state-of-the-art at the time of publishing. Note that these documents may be superseded later by more recent recommendations.

Reinforcing steel bars embedded in concrete depassi-
vate when a certain amount of chlorides is built up in
their surrounding,being the risk for reinforcement corro-
sion related to the chloride content in the concrete.
Therefore,reliable chloride analysis in hardened concrete
becomes a key parameter in the evaluation of existing
structures and in the prediction of future service life.
The present recommendation is the result of a
Round-Robin Test on chloride analysis in concrete,car-
ried out by the Technical Committee TC 178-TMC.A
total of 30 laboratories around the world have partici-
pated in this RRT and 64 different analyses on triplicate
specimens for three different chloride contents have
been carried out.The procedure for the analysis of total
chloride has been divided in two steps:extraction and
quantification ,being able to discriminate the reliability of
the procedure followed in each of them.Two different
methods of extraction of total chloride from the solid
sample as well as six different forms of analysing the
resulting liquids have been tested.It was also decided
that other methods could also be used to the choice of
each laboratory.The complete recipes and results
including the statistical analysis can be found in [1 ].
Other round-robin tests can be found in [2,3 ],being
presently one the largest ever performed.
As a final result,the method considered to be the
most suitable reference for total chlorides (extraction and
quantification)is the Volhard method [4-7 ],which is
that described in this recommendation.The ASTM ref-
erence method for analysis of total chlorides can be
found in [8 ].
