Abstract

The authors of this paper deserve to be congratulated for their study on the influence of pre-rusting on steel corrosion in concrete. The report of this kind of study is very scarce in the technical literatures. The topic of the study is very interesting as in the actual construction practice generally pre-rusted steel bars are used. We also are planning to do some study on this matter in the near future. After reading this article, we found that the authors did not provide/explain enough information/discussion related to the experimental setup and the experimental results. Further explanation on these matters will be very useful to us and also to other interested readers of the cement and concrete research journal.
