The durability of the rebar used in a concrete structure is very important for the safe and long-term use of that structure, and therefore, the root and the main cause of reducing the life and durability of that structure, which is corrosion, is of great importance. In this study, medium carbon steel bars with a diameter of 14 to 40 mm and a number of epoxy coated and fiber bars have been tested and the effect of simulated corrosion on the samples has been investigated by measuring the mechanical properties. The results obtained from this research can be effective in the field of rebar size selection according to its production method in different conditions. This result has been obtained according to the experiments. Mechanical properties are the main properties of steel rebar affected by corrosion that have been tested in this paper. In the measurement of mechanical properties by universal device, slight changes were seen depending on the type of device. In order to measure the rebar cross section more accurately, machining has been used to prepare the rebars after corrosion. The results of this research also showed that in 14 mm size rebar, with the progress of corrosion up to 0.68 mm, the amount of force tolerated decreased by 16.7% (from 102 KN to 85 KN). Also, in the next step, with 0.62 mm of corrosion progress, the amount of this force has reached 76.3 KN from 85 KN (i.e., 10.2% reduction). In the third stage, with the progress of 0.96 mm, the amount of force borne by the rebar has reached 69.7 KN from 76.3 KN, which is equivalent to a 2.5% decrease. Finally, considering the economic and various application conditions, suggestions have been made to improve the performance and increase the durability and long-term use of the structures with more confidence.
