The effect of corrosion on bond in reinforced concrete
Paper in proceedings, 2006

When reinforcement in concrete corrodes, splitting stresses are induced in the concrete. Thereby, the bond between the reinforcement and the concrete is influenced. This effect has been studied both experimentally and theoretically by many researchers. Here, this is investigated and described in a systematic way. An overview of the effect for various cases is given. Parameters defining the various cases are reinforcement type, existence of transverse reinforcement, and confinement due to concrete and boundaries. Preliminary recommendations for assessment of existing structures are given.
