Abstract: Depending on the aggressiveness of the environment, corrosion of the reinforcement induced by chemical actions is a major problem for concrete structures. This paper shows how the stochastic characteristic of the corrosion process can be taken into account in a simple model, which is applicable for design purposes. The integration of the corrosion effects in the traditional Limit States Design format, together with the mechanical actions is emphasised. This integration is needed to permit an optimum structural design in terms of life cycle cost.
