STANDARD: AASHTO T260, Comparable to ASTM C114
The determination of the chloride ion concentration in concrete is
essential in assessing the need for maintenance on, for example,
bridge decks and parking structures. The test can also be used
to ensure that materials used in new construction are free from
potentially harmful chloride ion levels.
With this method, the concentration of acid soluble chlorides is
measured. In most cases this is equivalent to total chloride concentration.
