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....

A microscopic survey of over 1000 of samples of concrete and masonry mortars from structures in the Netherlands shows that, in practice, self healing occurs in historic lime and lime – puzzolana mortars, in contrast to modern cement bound concretes and mortars. Self healing may be effected by the formation of either new Ca-carbonate, CaCO3, or...

road environment in The Netherlands for nearly a century. The experience is good and structures with long service lives can be obtained, as has been shown by several field studies. This is caused by a high resistance against chloride penetration and a high electrical resistivity, demonstrated both in the field and in the laboratory. Due to the...
