The civil engineering structures considered in this paper are reinforced concrete structures and cables. Corrosion tests are used to select the steel grades having the best corrosion resistance. Furthermore, electrochemical techniques, like the measurement of the electrode potential and of the polarization resistance, are applied to structures in service to characterize the condition of the reinforcing elements in the concrete.
