5 mm), or excessive shrinkage cracks along the bars then corrosion can be accelerated. Causes and mechanisms of corrosion 29 The relationship between cracks and reinforcement corrosion is more fully discussed in Concrete Society Technical Report 44 (1995). Corrosion causes horizontal cracking along the plane of the rebar and the corner cracking around the end rebar. 8. This is the main consequence of reinforcement corrosion with its subsequent risk of falling concrete and unacceptable appearance.
