This paper introduces the experimental corrosion tests that are carried on the existing weathering steel structures in the Czech Republic. The influence of the position and location of the surface in the structure on the resulting corrosion rates can be evaluated using this experimental testing. Typical surfaces of steel bridges are tested, e.g. webs of main girders, upper and lower surfaces of flanges, surfaces affected by leaking salt solutions. Results of the corrosions tests are used for the specification of corrosion prediction model.
