Abstract
Structures exposed to aggressive environments often suffer corrosion of steel reinforcement. As a consequence, an oxide layer develops around the steel, decreasing the net cross-sectional area of the reinforcement and the bond between the steel and the concrete, and leading to cracking of the surrounding concrete due to the volumetric expansion of the oxide, which implies an overall diminution in the remaining service life of the structure [1]. To model those effects, it is essential to know the type of oxide that is generated during the process and the value of its mechanical parameters. However, there are many uncertainties about them, due to the difficulty to perform direct-in-place measurements.
