    Abstract The durability of reinforced concrete (RC) exposed to severe environments depends largely on its ability to resist the penetration of aggressive compounds. This paper deals with the corrosion of reinforcement bars (rebars) in cracked concrete exposed to chlorides. A simple U-shaped specimen was used in the study, with a high yield strength deformed bar of 12 mm diameter placed at with 20 mm clear cover. Concrete specimens with three water to cement ratios (w/c) and pre-cracks exposed to chlorides were studied for quality assessment and quantifying the corrosion damage in terms of gravimetric weight loss.
