How Serious Is Rebar Corrosion?
Rebar corrosion is quite a serious occurrence given that it is extremely likely to negatively affect the structural integrity of structure it subsides in. In fact, the corrosion of reinforcing steel, along with other structurally embedded metals, is the leading cause of deterioration in concrete.
When reinforcing steel bars experience corrosion, the resulting rust tends to occupy a greater volume than the steel, in comparison. The expansion of the rust creates tensile stresses in the concrete structure which most often than not eventually causes cracking, delamination, spalling and much more – all of which substantially compromise the structural integrity of the structure. When this occurs, the structure then poses grave danger to its users as is more likely to sustain further and significant damage.
