A new approach is presented for the analysis of galvanostatically induced transients allowing for the rapid evaluation of the corrosion activity of steel in concrete. This method of analysis is based on the iterative fitting of a non-exponential model based on a modified KWW (Kohlrausch–Williams–Watt) formalism. This analysis yields values for the parameters related to corrosion such as the concrete resistance, polarisation resistance, interfacial capacitance and β, the non-ideality exponent.
