Corrosion of reinforcement has been established as the predominant factor causing widespread premature deterioration of concrete construction worldwide. It is one of the major durability problems, mainly when the rebar in the concrete is exposed to the chlorides either contributed from the concrete ingredients or penetrated from the surrounding chloride-bearing environment. Carbonation of concrete or penetration of acidic gases into the concrete, are the other causes of reinforcement corrosion. Besides these there are few more factors, some related to the concrete quality, such as w/c ratio, cement content, impurities in the concrete ingredients, presence of surface cracks, etc. and others related to the external environment, such as moisture, oxygen, humidity, temperature, bacterial attack, stray currents, etc., which affect reinforcement corrosion.
