There are a large number of very important and valuable large concrete dams around the world that are entering “middle age”. This article addresses the question of predicting their long term behavior and service life. The article firstly reviews the basic nature and physical properties of concrete in dams. Then the types and causes of ageing phenomena and deterioration mechanisms are identified and the key processes of sulphate attack, alkali-aggregate reactions and freeze-thaw damage reviewed… 
Damage Mechanism Evaluation of Large-Scale Concrete Structures Affected by Alkali-Silica Reaction Using Pattern Recognition
Alkali-silica reaction has caused damage to concrete structures, endangering structural serviceability and integrity. This is of concern in sensitive structures such as nuclear power plants. In this
QUANTITATIVE EVALUATION OF FREEZING-THAWING DAMAGE IN PLAIN CONCRETE BY DIGITAL-IMAGE-PROCESSING TECHNIQUE
Most of the concrete structures in North China are subjected to freezing and thawing (FT) damage. The general damage evaluation parameters for freezing-thawing, such as resonant frequency ,
