Analyzing crack width to predict corrosion in reinforced concrete

Abstract

Our aim in this paper is to introduce a set of relationships linking the distribution of reinforcement corrosion and the width of cover crack that results from such corrosion. This work is based on experimental results obtained on the longitudinal reinforcements of two beams naturally corroded over periods of 14 and 17 years. We first compared these experimental results with existing models linking crack width and attack penetration. Noting that such models only partially predict actual experimental data, we put forward a new model using the parameter of reinforcement cross-section loss.
