In the current study, the M25 grade concrete mixes are admixed with various locally available organic and non-organic corrosion inhibitors such as Calcium Nitrite, Sodium Nitrite, Hexamine and Di-ethanolamine to understand the influence of these organic and non-organic corrosion inhibitors on the strength and corrosion resistance properties of concrete. The percentage dosage of admixed inhibitors vary from 1 to 5% by the weight of cement. For M25 grade concrete the optimum percentages of corrosion inhibitor admixture was found to be 4% for Calcium Nitrite, 3% for Sodium Nitrite, 2% for Hexamine and 3% for Di-ethanolamine. Calcium Nitrite corrosion inhibitor admixture imparts increased compressive, split- tensile and flexural strength than other corrosion inhibitors at 28 days. All the corrosion inhibitors used in the study have enhanced the compressive strength, split tensile strength, and flexural strength of concrete. The initial gain of early strength decreased due to anodic process of inhibitors. Measured electrical resistivity and half-cell potential values of all corrosion inhibitors admixed M25 grade concrete mixes directs that calcium nitrate and Di-ethanolamine have shown high electrical resistance indicating their superior corrosion inhibition ability than sodium nitrite and hexamine. Accelerated corrosion test on reinforced concrete beams admixed with corrosion inhibitors confirmed that possible inception of corrosion in calcium nitrate admixed reinforced concrete beams is very low when compared to other corrosion inhibitors used for the study.
