Durability design of concrete structures

Construction in the Gulf and Arabian Penninsula

Durability study becomes part of the of the design methodologies of reinforced concrete structures. Considering the high initial construction cost, developers and authorities are demanding much longer service life for their structures (75 to 100 years or more) with minimum maintenance and life cycle cost. Service life is mainly controlled by exposure conditions and concrete durability characteristics such as corrosion and sulfate attack. Production of durable and quality concrete is the key to extending the service life of the structures.
