Tag: corrosion cracking Fractures due to fatigue and corrosion cracking

Prestressing steels can only be subjected to a noticeable stress in dynamically strained reinforced concrete structures if the concrete is cracked.39 The stress amplitudes of prestressing steel under high dynamic loads (e.g., high traffic load on a bridge) may then amount to >200 N/mm2 in the crack region. In the non-cracked state, the steels will show stress ranges below 100
