Life-365 ™ v2.2

Life-365 was developed in 1998, due to the need for a standard model for the service life of concrete. The model was developed through a workshop, and the Life-365 Service Life Prediction Model was released. When using the original version of Life-365, estimating surface chloride concentration was a difficult task. The current version (v2.2) improves the estimation of surface chloride concentration using information from ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) that can help in accurately measuring chloride content in concrete samples. V2.2 allows for more customization, due to chloride concentration varying by region. This allows the predictions of Life-365 to be more precise.
