Abstract: Study of different types of cracks in plain and reinforced concrete subjected to environment full of chloride and carbon laden corrosion problems. It is the most critical global challenge for construction industry which incurred losses more than $100. Cracks are ubiquitous in concrete materials and can destabilize a concrete structure, regardless of size or type. What happens structures are subjected to continuous loading .The study of behavior of structure for development of cracks which may be horizontal, vertical, to cracks possess little fracture energy. While discussing factors affecting cracking corrosion rate is key factor. An accurate method for measuring crack characteristics is presented. Analyzing results show that curves to be plotted for behavioral pattern for crack propagation . The construction industry demands such model to show serviceability of corrosion prone buildings or structures. . RCC structures life can be enhanced by proper maintenance and repairs. . Structures may cause matrix cracks, loading at variable speed due to non adherence of materials . Results studied were analyzed and rechecked by creating simulations of models. Increasing crack width and length lead to new study of infinite plate.
Keywords: Cracks, Concrete, Crack Length, Crack Width.
