Fatigue Life Prediction of Corroded Reinforced Concrete Beams under Repeated Loads
The behavior of materials under repeated loading has been examined, but extended studies are more and more needed especially for damaged reinforced structures such as bridges, where high-cycle fatigue phenomena and corrosion can be significant. In the present paper, a theoretical model based on fatigue performance of materials and stress analysis for cross-section is proposed in order to analyze the fatigue damage of corroded reinforced concrete beams under repeated loads. Further, fatigue life is predicted by applying this method, and the method is evaluated by test results.
