Technical Contradictions in the European Norm EN206 for Concrete Durability

In the EN 206, for each environmental exposure class recommendations are given in terms of water-cement ratio (w/c), air content, cement factor, and strength class. The aspects examined in this paper are (a) difficulties in the practical application of the norm, (b) contradictions between w/c and compressive strength and (c) incongruities between the environmental aggression levels and the corresponding durability requirements.
