In spite of modern techniques developed in the design and construction of reinforced concrete structures, corrosion of the reinforcement at the coast is still a source of much trouble. Great care is taken in choosing a properly designed concrete, the emphasis being on correct proportioning, the correct water-cement ratio, and adequate and thorough vibration. Yet difficulties in this regard arise and the saline atmosphere gets to the reinforcement and causes failure of the concrete.
