Structural effects of simultaneous loading and reinforcement corrosion on performance of concrete beams
Yingang Dua, Martin Cullena, Cankang Lib
► Tests done on concrete beams under simultaneous loading and corrosion (SLC). ► SLC causes a beam to exceed its limiting deflection for service prematurely. ► SLC decrease beam strength and especially, its ductility much more rapidly. ► SLC causes a beam to fail less ductile and even in a brittle way.
