A mechanical model has been used to evaluate the rebar-concrete debonding length and Crack Mouth Opening Displacement (CMOD) in reinforced concrete. The modelling is based on the theory of the fictitious crack. It is shown that there is a non-trival relationship between the debonding length and the CMOD, indicating that if the debonding length has a significant influence on the risk of corrosion initiation and propagation (as indicated in the literature), then CMOD cannot be used alone as corrosion risk indicator. A limited parametric study has been performed and it has been shown that the shear strength of the interface has a significant influence on the debonding length. The cover layer – on the other hand – has relatively little influence on the debonding lengths.
