Abstract

The durability of reinforced concrete structures is more than ever the focus of research. The drive towards a more sustainable society burdens us with the responsibility to produce longer lasting structures, with fewer needs for rehabilitation, and using materials with smaller ecological footprints. This is an overwhelming challenge, but one that has been tackled systematically from many different directions. This workshop, that brought together doctoral students working on the durability of reinforced concrete, reflects the multi-faceted approach with which this challenge is been tackled. Research varies from studying advanced materials for concrete durability to the effects of climate change on deterioration of structures. Other aspects addressed include assessment of repairs for reinforced concrete structures, the performance of concrete with cracking, the service life assessment of existing reinforced concrete structures, and the modelling of chloride ingress and the integrated effect of deterioration mechanism.
