Experimental stress-strain diagram of corroded reinforcing-steel bars

Davor Grandić, Dubravka Bjegović, Zorislav Sorić

Abstract

When compared to the non-corroded reinforcing steel, the corroded bars and deterioration of their mechanical properties, exert a considerable impact on the residual bearing capacity and serviceability of reinforced-concrete structures. Original expressions are proposed for defining mechanical properties of corroded reinforcement, as related to the level of corrosion. An experimental stress-strain diagram of corroded reinforcing-steel bars, useful in the analysis of residual bearing capacity of reinforced concrete structures, is also proposed.

Keywords
corrosion rate, experimental diagrams, corrosion of reinforcingsteel bars, bearing capacity and serviceability of a structure
