Current Research Project:

“Relevance of crack width and decompression requirements (limits) due to durability aspects of conventional reinforcement”

A central part of the project is collection of long-term field data on the extent of corrosion in vicinity of cracks.

Corrosion propagation in cracked concrete is not yet fully understood. Contradicting conclusions were reached based on short- and long-term observations. Short-term investigations (up to a few years) indicate that corrosion rates are enhanced by cracks and mainly dependent on cover depth and concrete quality rather than on crack width. The few undertaken long-term studies indicate that small cracks have limited influence on corrosion propagation. However, we do at present not have sufficient background for such a general statement. Thus, there is a need for detailed long-term data and understanding of mechanism of corrosion propagation of steel reinforcement embedded in cracked concrete.

The project is part of the ongoing research project " Ferry-free coastal route E39" initiated by Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA). (
