Worldwide huge amount was spent on infrastructure development projects, in which a major part is spent on demolishing deteriorated structures due to their reduction in serviceability due to various external factors. This may be attained by preventing reinforced cement concrete (RC) structures from factors that affect serviceability such as corrosion. The research community is developing various techniques to predict corrosion in RC structures to prevent the structure in the initial stages by carrying out maintenance work instead of going for the reconstruction of deteriorated structures. The corrosion of RC structures was mainly caused by chloride ions penetrating the structure or by carbonation. This coefficient can be used to predict the rate of corrosion in concrete. Electrochemical measurement, Eddy current, Half-cell potential measurement, etc., are the experimental techniques to forecast the corrosion rate in concrete reviewed. Recently various software’s like Life 365, Thermos calc, Concrete Compass, etc., were developed to predict the corrosion rate in RC structures. This research paper reviews the effectiveness of the application of software to predict corrosion rate in RC structures by reviewing previous research works to identify an accurate method to be followed.
