Abstract

Reinforced concrete (RC) structures deteriorate with time and corrosion of reinforcing steel is one of the main causes for that. In the paper a framework for reliability-based assessment of durability of RC concrete structures in corrosive environments will be briefly described. Existing models for corrosion initiation, corrosion-induced cracking, and effects of corrosion on stiffness and strength of RC members will be considered. Special attention will be paid to the effects of a changing climate on corrosion risks to RC structures.
