Supporting Data for Corrosion Mechanism and Kinetic Model of Steel in Alkali-Activated Slag
Dataset of study on Corrosion Mechanism and Kinetic Model of Steel in Alkali-Activated Slag. The data mainly includes the raw data of the figures, the analysis results and the related table and figure. The introduction of this study is as follows:
Corrosion of steel is the most frequent cause of structural premature degradation of reinforced concrete infrastructure serving in various complex and harsh environments, e.g., atmosphere with high temperature and relative humidity, wet-dry cycle in the splash zone, and chloride-rich seaside environment, which eventually leads to significant maintenance and life-cycle costs. As one of the clinker-less alternatives to traditionally ordinary Portland cement (OPC) materials, alkali-activated slag (AAS) material shows potential advantages in durability performance against chloride-induced steel corrosion; however, there is a lack of comprehensive investigation in related fields. This thesis aims to investigate the corrosion behavior, mechanism, and kinetics of steel in alkali-activated slag, especially in partially saturated conditions.
