Abstract :

► Reinforced concrete beams with tensile or compression stress were corroded. ► Comparison between the advance of corrosion cracking on both cases was done. ► Gravimetric losses on both cases were compared. ► Greater cracking on cover concrete does not indicate greater loss on bars section.
