This guide is a complete revision of the committee document "Guide to Durable Concrete," ACI 201.2R-77 (Reapproved 1982), which appears in Part 1 of the ACI Manual of Concrete Practice. This new document represents major revisions in a number of areas, which reflect an increase in the knowledge of the numerous factors influencing concrete durability since 1977. In general, separate chapters are devoted to specific types of concrete deterioration. Each Chapter contains a discussion of the mechanisms involved and the recommended requirements for individual components of the concrete, quality considerations for concrete mixtures, construction procedures, and influences of the exposure environment, all important considerations to assure concrete durability. Some guidance as to repair tehcniques is also provided.
