Reinforced concrete (RC) structures have the ability to be extremely durable and able to withstand a diversity of different environmental cases. However, failure in these structures still happens due to precocious reinforcement erosion. If steel reinforcement corrodes in concrete structures, this leads to a decrease in the lifetime and durability of these structures, which cause early failure of the structures, costing significantly to inspect and maintain the deteriorating structures. Then, monitoring of reinforcement corrosion is of great importance to prevent early failure of structures. Structures corrosion can be decreased through correct monitoring and taking appropriate control measures in the appropriate period of time. When steel bars corrode, the formation of rust causes the concrete to be separated from the steel and then thereafter. In case this issue is not addressed, it may influence the entire structure. This paper attempts to present a comprehensive review of corrosion of rebar in RC structures, its mechanisms, monitoring and prevention.
