In the present work, assessment of corrosion resistance for M30 grade concrete made with basalt fibres in terms of Resistivity, Potentials and Chloride ion diffusion is made to understand the corrosion resistance studies of concrete specimen made with basalt fibre and BFRP bars. The time of total charge passing till full crack failure for different effective covers considered is more for M30 grade concrete beams made with basalt fibres and BFRP rebars. The time of total charge passing at failure in M30 grade concrete beams made with basalt fibres and BFRP rebars is more because beam specimens did not develop any fissures or micro cracks. Measured electrical resistivity values of M30 grade concrete beams made with basalt fibres have shown high electrical resistance indicating their superior corrosion inhibition ability. M30 grade concrete beams made with basalt fibres and BFRP rebars used for the study exhibited very less probability (less than 5% probability) for corrosion at 28 days.
