The study consists of a review of the pertinent literature dealing with the protection of reinforcing steel for the express purpose of determining the present state of knowledge in this area. The information was placed into four general categories Portland cement concrete, protective coatings, inhibitors, and cathodic protection. Much recent interest was shown in the field of inhibitors for use against corrosion attack. At the present time, this area would seem to be the most fruitful for additional research to evaluate the effectiveness of certain rust inhibiting additives and to determine what effects these additives would have on the mechanical properties of concrete.
