Performance of Concrete Structures in the Marine Environment of Karnataka, India

This paper presents some case studies where different types of concrete structures exposed to the marine environment in the West Coast of Karnataka, India, showed early deterioration due to reinforced corrosion. In the case studies the causes of the poor performance of the structures are well illustrated. The assessment of the structures shows that when defective structures are exposed to aggressive environment, such as marine environment, very high deterioration rates can develop leading to serious damage conditions in very short time periods, often leading to reduced service life .
