Extensive experience demonstrates that the durability of concrete structures is related not only to design and material but also to construction issues. Upon completion of new concrete structures, the achieved construction quality always shows a high scatter and variability, and in severe environments, any weaknesses in the concrete structures will soon be revealed whatever specifications and constituent materials have been applied. In order to better take all this variability into account, a… 

Durability design and quality assurance of major concrete infrastructure

Upon completion of new concrete structures, the achieved construction quality always shows a high scatter and variability, and in severe environments, any weaknesses and deficiencies will soon be

Concrete durability standards: International trends and the South African context

Durability problems in reinforced concrete (RC) structures are an issue of global concern, since they threaten economic growth, natural resources and human safety. As a result, attempts have been

Probabilistic Design for the Durability of Reinforced Concrete Structural Elements Exposed to Chloride Containing Environments

To obtain structures with long service lives in chloride containing environments, durability design methods should be carried out. In such a design, chloride diffusion must be expressed as a

Temporal-spatial reliability analysis of RC bridges with corroded steel reinforcement bars

Corrosion of steel bars is one of the most significant causes of deterioration of reinforced concrete (RC) structures. The performance of RC structures is affected by many factors such as materials,

An experimental investigation on nano-TiO2 and fly ash based high performance concrete

High performance concrete (HPC) offers several advantages over normal-strength concrete, namely, high mechanical strength and high durability. Therefore, HPC allows for concrete structures with less

SUSTAINABLE CONCRETE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

The experimental investigation is mainly focused on the development of cost effective high strength concrete containing high volume fly ash. Fly ash is a byproduct of coal fired electric power

Modified chloride diffusion model for concrete under the coupling effect of mechanical load and chloride salt environment

For the purpose of investigating lining concrete durability, this study derives a modified chloride diffusion model for concrete based on the odd continuation of boundary conditions and Fourier
