Abstract


RESUMEN

La corrosión de las estructuras de concreto armado se acentúa cuando son colocadas en ambientes con microclimas extremadamente agresivos. La habilidad para evaluar la corrosión de las varillas de refuerzo en estas estructuras y poder estimar la vida en servicio remanente es tema de estudios en muchas partes del mundo. Este trabajo muestra la importancia de implementar una metodología de inspección y diagnóstico que genere, a través del empleo de equipos especializados y tecnología de punta, datos confiables que permitan el desarrollo de procesos de planeación en las intervenciones de rehabilitación y/o mantenimiento de los elementos de concreto reforzado. El conjunto de resultados permitió la optimización de recursos humanos y materiales del usuario final.

Palabras Clave: Corrosión; concreto armado; evaluación; reparación.


ABSTRACT

Corrosion of reinforced concrete structures (RCS) is accentuated when there are placed in environments with extremely aggressive microclimates. In many parts of the world, the ability to evaluate the corrosion of rebars in these RCS and estimate the remaining service life is subject of study. This work shows that the implementation of an inspection and diagnosis methodology must generate reliable data, through the use of specialized equipment and technology. Additionally, the development of planning processes in rehabilitation interventions and/or maintenance of reinforced concrete elements should be privileged. The results obtained allowed the optimization of human and material resources of the end user.

Keywords: Corrosion; reinforced concrete; evaluation; rehabilitation.
