Corrosion processes with time may cause cracking, delamination and finally catastrophic failure of concrete structures. From a safety aspect as well as economic reasons, it is necessary to monitor concrete structures to detect corrosion at its early stages utilizing non-destructive testing techniques. In this paper, a new monitoring technique using inductive scanning technology is presented. Results obtained using this technique are compared with the potential mapping data. The advantages and limitations of both techniques are discussed.
