Corrosion effect on reinforced concrete is one of major issue in construction industry. Reinforced concrete is widely used in construction industry due to its extensive accessibility. The outcome of steel corrosion includes damages cross section of steel area, cracks in concrete due to increasing expansive pressure, In coastal region due to effect of chloride deterioration of steel is cause which resulting into reinforcement corrosion which affects service and life of RCC structure. The bond strength between the steel reinforcing bar and concrete is thus reduced and the strength of the structure deteriorates. The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of corrosion on torsional strength, shear strength and flexural strength of reinforced concrete beams. We used accelerated corrosion technique to induced corrosion on reinforced concrete experimentally in laboratory. Using M20 grade with ordinary Portland cement, beam specimens are casted. Universal testing machine (UTM) is used flexural and shear strength and load and deflection behavior is analyzed. Specially prepared setup is used for torsional strength.
