Insufficient concrete cover over reinforcing steel is a common cause of damage to highway bridge structures. This can also be problem in hydroelectric and irrigation structures. Reclamation usually requires a minimum of 3 inches of concrete cover over reinforcing steel, but in corrosive environments, this can be insufficient. Failure to provide adequate contraction joints or failure to make expansion joints wide enough to accommodate temperature expansion in concrete slabs will result in damage.
