Replacing part of the cement in the concrete with fly ash - products of solid fuel burning, requires testing, including the degree of the reinforcement protection against corrosion provided by concrete. The paper presents a comparison of the results of the tests of the effectiveness of corrosion protection of reinforced concrete with the addition of calcareous fly ash. Tests were conducted by two electrochemical methods. Results obtained by potentiostatic measurement on reinforcement inserts deposited in cylindrical specimens in accordance with EN 480-14 standard were compared with studies investigating the progress of reinforcement corrosion caused by chlorides in loaded and cracked test elements made of these concretes. Tests of the cracked elements reflect the behaviour of reinforced concrete construction during operation in adverse environmental conditions, classified as standard XD and XS exposure classes. Comparison of the tests indicates the potential for potentiostatic measurement to be used to current assessment of protective properties of concrete with mineral additives.
