Design of reinforced concrete is based on assuming that applied rebar has no corrosion damages at its surface. However, conventional construction practice allows the rebar embedded into concrete to have surface rust. Being transported in open railway cars, by river or marine transports, being in warehouses of intermediate traders and then affected during this time by an atmospheric precipitation and sometimes even aggressive agents of the environment (for example, being in direct contact with remains of chlorides which are earlier transported in the same cars), rebar arrives to construction site with corrosion defects of different types and various extents. Corrosion damages are caused not only by the conditions of its transportation and storage, but also by poor quality of the steel itself. This may lead to dangerous consequences such as sudden collapses of building constructions without preliminary visible deflections and deformations. One of the reasons of sudden structure collapses related to steel quality is strong structure heterogeneity stressed out by the slag immerge at the surface from the bar’s core. The emergence of slag to a surface of the rebar is especially noticeable in rebar produced by a multilane casting method. The solution of durability problems of reinforced concrete structures is based on competent design, identification and application of necessary methods of corrosion resistance for steel rebar, quality control in producer facilities as well as on the construction site of the consumer, increase in durability of bonding of rebar with concrete, and sufficient choice of primary and secondary anticorrosive protection for rebar and concrete.
