    Abstract

    Values of the coefficient of chloride diffusion D, as measured by the classical diffusion test and by a penetration test, are compared. It is shown that D cannot be determined reliably from penetration tests. Two sets of nomograms are developed for the design of concrete structures in chloride environments. The proposed nomograms can cope with a wide range of concrete variables: a basis is provided for their extension to include parameters not studied in the present investigation.
