Testing for the chloride threshold (also called critical chloride content) for corrosion initiation of steel in concrete has been found difficult and, at best, time consuming. Nevertheless, the chloride threshold is an important parameter in service life design of new structures and for evaluation of the remaining service life of existing...

Asset managers would benefit from knowing when to expect corrosion initiation in a particular reinforced concrete structure. However, accepted approaches to test existing structures for the remaining time to corrosion initiation are lacking. This paper proposes such an approach, based on experience in the field and additional considerations....

For many concrete infrastructural works a service life of 80, 100 or 200 years is required. To convince owners and authorities that these requirements can be met probability-based models for service life predictions have been developed. These models are based on theoretical and experimental laboratory studies. Many of these models focus on the...

Quality control during the construction process is one of the determining factors that governs the service life of an asphalt road. In CONSISTEND a predictive tool is developed that objectively determines the effect of quality control during the construction processes on the life span of surface courses of asphalt roads. The tool predicts the...

Blast furnace slag cement (BFSC) has been used in reinforced concrete structures in marine and road environment in The Netherlands for nearly a century. Experience is good and long service lives can be obtained. In Norway experience with BFSC is scarce. In The Netherlands, a high resistance against chloride penetration and a high electrical...

The service life of a building or structure is determined by the design and construction in combination with the ageing and the maintenance during use. To get grip on this combination it has advantage to present the functioning of the building or the structure on a performance level. As ageing will influence the performance, the combined effect...

In the past years much efforts have been spent on a new design approach for the durability of existing and new concrete structures. The results of these efforts can be seen in recent work of several international scientific committees of Rilem, CEB, CIB and FIER These have finally resulted in the Brite/Euram project DuraCrete where a design...
