    Abstract

    Concrete failure can develop from many causes, for example, thermal gradients, fatigue, insufficient cover, admixtures, rebar material, and exposure location. Cracking of concrete in itself was not found to be detrimental but could lead to spalling and structural deterioration. Metallic-coated rebars are shown to prevent concrete spalling.
