Corrosion is one of the primary reason why structures have limited durability. The bond behavior is influenced by the reduced adhesion and cohesion of the reinforcing bars. Expansive corrosion products provoke cracks along the reinforcement which leads to spalling of concrete cover. The loss of bond strength between reinforcement and concrete may lead to reduction of load bearing capacity. In this paper, the behavior of bond strength of FRC members consisting of two types of fibers are studied for different levels of corrosion such as 0%,2.5%,. Load V/s slip relationship is studied for specimen with 12 mm diameter of TMT bars.
