    • Effect of time dependent corrosion rate on residual capacity of corroded RC beam 

      Kioumarsi, Mahdi; Hajmohammadian Baghban, Mohammad; Imperatore, Stefania (IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering;Volume 652, Number 1, Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Corrosion is the most commonly severe defect in reinforced concrete (RC) structures and it mainly causes reduced rebar cross-section. The corrosion rate is the determining parameter of the progress of corrosion-induced ...
    • Lateral displacement capacity of reinforced concrete elements damaged by corrosion 

      Imperatore, Stefania; Kioumarsi, Mahdi (IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering;Volume 652, Number 1, Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The aim of this work is to evaluate the influence of corrosion on the lateral displacement capacity and on the global ductility of reinforced concrete (RC) elements, using finite element (FE) analysis. The corrosive ...
    • Residual Flexural Capacity of Corroded Prestressed Reinforced Concrete Beams 

      Kioumarsi, Mahdi; Benenato, Armando; Ferracuti, Barbara; Imperatore, Stefania (Metals;Volume 11, Issue 3, Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-03-07)
      Infrastructures and industrial buildings are commonly exposed to aggressive environments and damaged by corrosion. In prestressed reinforced concrete structures, the potential risks of corrosion could be severe since ...
    • Seismic behavior of irregular RC-Frames damaged by corrosion 

      Imperatore, Stefania; Kioumarsi, Mahdi (Advances in Engineering Materials, Structures and Systems: Innovations, Mechanics and Applications;, Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-21)
      Reinforced Concrete (RC) structures frequently are deteriorated by corrosion attack where pitting morphology is the worst form of degradation. Appropriate vulnerability analyses, accounting for the variation of mechanical ...
    • Ultimate Flexural Capacity of Reinforced Concrete Elements Damaged by Corrosion 

      Bossio, Antonio; Imperatore, Stefania; Kioumarsi, Mahdi (Buildings;Volume 9, Issue 7, Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-29)
      Worldwide, steel corrosion is one of the greatest deterioration problems for reinforced concrete structures. Comparing some experimental results from literature with a complex FEM model, the present paper points out the ...
