By designing in corrosion prevention and through preventive maintenance, the overall service cost of a concrete structure can be substantially reduced. This book takes a probabilistic approach to the engineering design issues for controlling durability and service life of concrete structures in severe environments. Many durability problems are caused by poor quality control as well as special problems during concrete construction. The issue of construction quality and variability need to be grasped before durability can be successfully controlled. This book helps by giving: reviews of field performance, deteriorating processes and current codes and practice methods for calculation of corrosion probability; performance-based concrete quality control; corrosion prevention and preventive maintenance calculation of life cycle costs and life cycle assessment recommended job specifications. Internationally relevant with a practical focus, this is the essential guide for consulting and construction engineers involved in the design and execution of new concrete structures.
