Title: Effects of the corrosion on the steel-to-concrete interaction
Financing provider: THE OSLOMET – OSLO METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY
Scientific Manager: Dr. Stefania Imperatore
Project description
Purpose: The scientific research involves the experimental study of the bond degradation in reinforced concrete elements damaged by corrosion. The survey will analyse different cover-to-diameter ratio are tested order to catch the splitting or the pull-out failure mode. Moreover, the different reinforcement typologies −the smooth bars, the ribbed bars, and the strands− are tested, in order to investigate the effects of the bond-slip decay in the most typical existing reinforced concrete structures.
Results: The experimental campaign will analyse aspects not completely covered by the scientific literature, providing a deep understanding of the decay in the bond-slip relationship.

Title: Effect of the corrosion on structural integrity of prestressed reinforced concrete beams
Financing provider: THE OSLOMET – OSLO METROPOLITAN UNIVERSITY
Scientific Manager: Dr.
Stefania Imperatore
Project description
Purpose: TThe scientific research involves the analysis of the structural integrity of prestressed reinforced beams damaged by corrosion. The research will consist in the artificial corrosion process of three prestressed beams with the same corrosion level (20%) but different extension of damage. As reference, another beam will be tested without the superposition of the artificial corrosion process. The experimental survey will allow the development of numerical and analytical models able to permit a reliable simulation of the behaviour of existing structures. Results: It is expected that with the increasing of the corrosion extension, the structural capacity proportionally will decrease.
