DURABILITY DESIGN OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES: REPORT OF RILEM TECHNICAL COMMITTEE 130-CSL

The report introduces into structural design, a general theory of concrete structural reliability, in combination with existing calculation models for the commonest degradation processes. It covers the theoretical background and practical design for service life. Worked examples are included to highlight the application of the design procedure and methods. The statistical background is introduced and an explanation is given of how models of deterioration processes can be used to predict durability characteristics of concrete structures. Current safety and performance results, under static, and impact loading, are used. All durability parameters such as concrete cover, material properties, the amount of reinforcement and dimensions of the structures are calculated, taking into account actual degradation processes and, where necessary, their interaction. Stochastic modelling of degradation by the Markov chain method is considered in an appendix.
