Abstract: Corrosion rate is one of the most important input parameter in corrosion-induced damage prediction models for reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Prediction of time of corrosion initiation to corrosion cracking is crucial factor for evaluation of structural durability. Its accurate assessment and prediction is therefore required if the damage prediction models are to be reliably used to predict both the rate and severity of damage and to plan for maintenance of the structures. To cater with this issue, researchers developed the numerical models for prediction of time of corrosion initiation to corrosion cracking. These models are relatively new and needs further investigation for checking of their global applicability. Thus, present research work aims to carry out comparative study for prediction of time from onset of corrosion to corrosion cracking through numerical & experimental investigation
