Polder, R.B. TNO Bouw Publication year 2007 Abstract Nowadays important concrete infrastructure is increasingly being designed for long service life by modelling of degradation and probabilistic assessment of uncertainties, e.g. using the DuraCrete method. Although on paper a reliable and durable structure will result, it is the execution phase that can make or break the service life approach. Hence, testing of concrete for durability during the actual production is needed. This paper presents a validation study of a non-destructive production control and service life achievement of important cast in situ parts of the Green Heart Tunnel. Production control is based on Two Electrode Method testing, while validation consisted of measurements taken after one to three years on site and testing of cores using Rapid Chloride Migration testing. The results show that quality control by resistivity testing as exercised in this project was successful Subject Buildings and InfrastructureMaterialsBuilt Environment To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:ce40c978-1fa4-4953-ba6a-227cef88c9e8 TNO identifier 331283 ISBN 9780853899136 Source Concrete Platform, April 19-20, 2007, Queen's University of Belfast, Belfast, Ireland, 503-512 Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
