This book will explain how to produce durable concrete, prevent premature concrete deterioration, and assess why concrete may suffer from degradation. It will examine the main forms of deterioration, including reinforcing steel corrosion, carbonation of concrete, freeze-thaw attack, sulfate attack, and alkali-aggregate reaction. It will also cover weathering, biogenic corrosion, abrasion, fire, acid attack, and scour. Several case studies will be presented to provide real-world examples of deterioration. The book will focus on the material science aspects of the deterioration mechanisms so that a strong fundamental understanding will be realized by professionals and graduate students alike.
