Summary:
The purpose of the thesis is to determine and compare the performance characteristics of marine piles corroded by chloride diffusion and repaired by several different methods for both uncracked and cracked concrete and to determine their structural integrity. The long-term objective is the comparison of the analytical values with those from an on-going experimental evaluation. The time for chloride concentration reach the threshold value that initiates corrosion in the reinforcement has been determined by Fick's law, extended to 2-D and 3-D chloride diffusion, for (a) uncracked concrete, and (b) for cracked concrete with the Simplified Smeared Approach (SSA). The structural integrity of the concrete circular pile is compared before and alter repair, by (a) finite element modeling using ANSYS software with the maximum deflection, and (b) beam strength analysis to find the moment capacity for cracked and ultimate conditions. The overall findings indicate the adequacy of the repair procedures.
