This second part addresses some important issues that remain controversial despite the vast amounts of work devoted to investigating corrosion in concrete-embedded steel. Specifically, these refer to: 1) the relative significance of galvanic macrocouples and corrosion microcells in reinforced concrete structures; 2) the mechanism by which reinforcements corrode in an active state; 3) the best protective methods for preventing or stopping reinforcement corrosion; 4) the possibility of a reliable prediction of the service life of a reinforced concrete structure; and 5) the best corrosion measurement and control methods. The responses provided are supported by experimental results, most of which were obtained by the authors themselves.
