In this study, the capabilities of Neutron Radiography (NRad) and -Tomography (NTomo), as well as X-ray Radiography (XRad) to investigate chlorides and chlorides corrosion effects within steel reinforced laboratory concrete samples are practically explored. Capabilities of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Prompt Gamma Neutron Activation Analysis (PGNAA), Particle Induced X-ray Emission (PIXE), Small-Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS), Neutron Diffraction (NDIFF) and X-ray Diffraction (XDIFF) analytical techniques are also explored through review of literature.
