Structural behavior of corroded reinforced concrete structures
Paper in proceedings, 2008

This paper presents a methodology to analyze the mechanical behavior and remaining load-carrying capacity of corroded reinforced concrete structures. The effect of corrosion is modeled as a change in geometry and properties, i.e. reduction of steel area, removal of spalled concrete and modification of bond-slip properties. The methodology is tested on concrete beams affected by corrosion using finite element analysis and the results were compared with experiments.
