Corrosion in reinforced concrete structures reduces the strength of the structures which in turn reduces their life. The change in the load-deflection characteristics of structural elements is discussed in this paper. The change in the load bearing capacity of the structures due to different rates of corrosion with time is discussed. Effect of corrosion on steel stress both in the case of reinforced cement concrete as well as in the case of prestressed concrete has also been analysed. A seven step procedure for assessing the residual life of structures is proposed
