The only conditions are the structural safety (reduction in cross section) and spalling of the concrete (economic reasons). In general, the techniques are more cost effective if applied before deterioration has become so severe as to require extensive removal and replacement of spalled and delaminated concrete (conventional repairs). ) dynamic loading of the structure during the treatment could be detrimental. g. by weight or speed limitations - where road surfaces are involved). In cases where deterioration of a structure depends on the rate of chloride penetration from the environment and on the maintenance period of the treated structure, the concrete surface may be sealed against further chloride ingress, or the treatment may need to be repeated periodically.

This type of cracking is caused when hydrogen infiltration leads to an embrittlement of the material. The process of cracking is a combination of cathodic hydrogen evolution and physical transport and fracture processes inside the steel. For high-strength steels this type of damage requires only a very small amount of atomic hydrogen capable of absorption. The critical hydrogen concentration depends on the type of prestressing steel, its grain structure and the stress level. On post-tensioned structures, where the high strength steel is in a grouted metallic or plastics duct, different opinions exist on the risk for hydrogen embrittlement during the application of CE or RA.

Both electrodes were outside the sample in the electrode chambers which were filled with 0 . 5 NaOH ~ an electrolyte which is never used in practice. As the liquid volume of each electrode chamber was almost twice the volume of the entire cement sample, the changes in OH-concentration in the electrode chambers were not big enough to effect any major changes in the OH- concentration of the cement paste sample. This contradicts the situation in practice, where a strong increase in OH- concentration occurs at the reinforcement during CE.
