Reliable Engineering Assessments of Corroded Concrete Structures
Paper in proceedings, 2017

Corrosion of steel reinforcement is a large and increasing problem for reinforced concrete structures. Simple and reliable assessment methods are required to use the full capacity of existing infrastructure. In this paper, a reliable engineering assessment method is outlined. A model for anchorage has been developed and verified against a large database of bond tests. Also the influence of corrosion on the bending and shear capacity is to be included, and a probabilistic model will be established. The outcome of this work will enable practising engineers to perform reliable assessments of concrete structures with corroded reinforcement.
