The design of buildings is carried out by engineers and can therefore, unfortunately, also be subject to human error. Such (serious) deficiencies can be discovered during construction, during the life span of a building or during major structural interventions, for example, in the context of redevelopment. The impact of such discoveries is felt on an economic, ecological and social level. Budgets cannot be maintained, materials are wasted or at ...

The relation between concrete crack width and rebar corrosion level validated on a large set of experimental data KU Leuven
Reinforced concrete (RC) structures are subject to various degradation mechanisms, including reinforcement corrosion which impacts durability and structural safety. The effects of corrosion of reinforcing steel include a local reduction of the rebar’s cross-section and the formation of rust. As corrosion products occupy a greater volume than steel, this leads to internal stresses, concrete cracking, and eventually spalling. The condition ...
