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
