In this study splitting crack of cover concrete due to corrosion of reinforcing bar and the critical volume increment of the reinforcing bar which causes full penetration of the splitting crack to the concrete surface are analyzed by a nonlinear finite element method. As a result, relationships between the dimension of the surrounding concrete, which is the concrete cover and the bar spacing, and the characteristics of the splitting crack, which is its direction and the critical volume increment are clarified.
