Modeling corrosion of steel in concrete - ScienceDirect

2016-1-1  13.1. Introduction. The corrosion of steel reinforcement is the most common cause of deterioration of reinforced concrete structures (Bertolini et al., 2000, Bohni, 2005, Broomfield, 2007, Kurtis and Mehta, 1997, Mehta and Monteiro, 2005).Therefore, identifying steel corrosion in reinforced concrete structures early, before extensive corrosion-induced cracking and delamination occur, is ...

2019-2-1  When steel corrosion is initiated, corrosion products at the steel/concrete interface are found to cause expansive stresses on the surrounding concrete by obtaining around 2–6 times the volume of the original steel (EPA, 1991; Lu et al., 2018). Consequently, the main structural damage is not the loss of steel cross-sections, but the concrete ...
