Standard Recommended Practice for
Assessment of Corrosion of Steel Piling
for Non-Marine Applications
AASHTO Designation: R 27-01 (2006)
1.1.This recommended practice is focused on corrosion of steel piling for non-marine soil applications.
1.2.This recommended practice is divided into two parts:
Part I-Environmental Conditions Causing Corrosion of Steel Piling, and Part II-Corrosion Considerations for New and Existing Piling.
1.2.1.Part I of the recommended practice describes the current knowledge of the mechanism of underground corrosion to aid the reader in better understanding the
controlling factors and identifies the known factors that cause corrosion of piling in non-marine applications.
1.2.2.Part II of the recommended practice describes procedures that should be followed to assess the soil corrosivity at a specific site and offers guidance in the
selection of corrosion mitigation procedures for new piling installations.
Methods are described to evaluate the present condition of existing steel piling.
Guidance is provided in the continued use of existing steel piling or reuse of steel piling in new or rehabilitated structures.
