One of the major degradation processes of reinforced concrete structures is the corrosion of the steel reinforcement. It affects the safety of a concrete structure. Many existing structures show significant corrosion damage. Among other environmental impacts, carbonation- and chloride-induced corrosion of the reinforcement causes most of the failures in concrete structures. Chloride-induced corrosion is more important for structures exposed to a chloridecontaining environment, such as bridges treated with deicing salt in winter, marine concrete structures exposed to sea-water and concrete composed of salt contaminated aggregates. The paper introduces the effect of different degrees of reinforcement corrosion on the bond degradation [1].
