Durability of Concrete. Second Edition

This circular is an update to Transportation Research Circular 494: Durability of Concrete, published in 1999. This revised publication is intended to provide the latest information for consideration by practitioners on producing durable concrete for transportation structures and pavements. Considering the number of facilities that have required repairs and reconstruction before reaching their intended service life, as well as the cost of the rehabilitation and the inconveniences to the traveling public, the importance of constructing long-lasting bridges and pavements continues to capture national attention and remains a high-priority item. This document is divided into sections introducing each topic and discussing the production of durable concrete through materials selection, proportioning, construction practices, specifications, and testing. Also included is a section of case studies, providing examples of problems encountered in the field that involve concrete pavement and bridges, along with the proposed solutions by the authors of the studies.
