While driving precast concrete piles, severe impact blows are imparted on the head of the piles and this dynamic force leads to the formation of micro and macro cracks in concrete. Due to the presence of these cracks, the concrete may become more permeable and corrosion of the embedded rebars is likely to be enhanced. In this paper, it is shown that corrosion rate increases steeply with the number of impact blows on the concrete specimens. It is also shown that corrosion resistance of concrete piles can be improved by suitable protective coating
