SEVERAL FACTORS REGARDING SUSTAINABILITY OF MARINE CONCRETE STRUCTURES

In this paper, several factors relating to the sustainability of marine concrete structures are detailed, based on detailed lab and long-term exposure tests. The factors included voids at the steel-concrete interface, crack widths and autogenous healing, blended cements, chemical admixtures, type of bars, and joints. Long-term exposure investigations were conducted using specimens exposed to a marine environment for 10+ years. Test results are provided, and conclusions are offered and discussed.
