Effect of Accelerated Corrosion on RC Members
Corrosion of reinforcing steel is a major problem addressed by the construction industry nowadays. As corrosion
has a significant effect on the flexural strength, deformational behavior, bond strength and mode of failure, durability, the
ductility of reinforced concrete structures, the study about the process and effect of corrosion become important. In the
present work, an overview of experimental investigation has been carried out using accelerated corrosion technique to study
the effect of different types of steel bars using gravimetric loss method. Performance of TMT bars under corrosive
environment and also on bond strength effect.
