One of the most pressing problems facing the construction industry globally is the deterioration of major concrete infrastructure in marine and other chloride-containing environments. While recent advancements in concrete technology have made it easier to control the negative impact of deteriorating processes such as alkali-aggregate reaction, freezing and thawing and chemical attack, chloride-induced corrosion of embedded steel continues to pose the biggest threat to structure durability and performance. The second edition of Durability Design of Concrete Structures in Severe Environments focuses on enhancing the durability and service life of concrete structures. The text describes field experience and deteriorating processes of concrete structures in severe environments, and includes current data based on extensive field investigations. It presents a durability design based on calculation of corrosion probability, and outlines additional protective strategies and measures. The text also describes procedures for performance-based concrete quality control and quality assurance with documentation of achieved construction quality and compliance with specified durability. The text further covers calculation of life cycle costs and life cycle assessment, and includes some new recommended job specifications. What’s New in the Second Edition: This second edition delivers more results and experience from practical applications of the probability-based durability design and the performance-based concrete quality control. It includes recent commercial projects both for Oslo Harbor KF and Nye Tjuvholmen KS in Oslo, and contains some preliminary results from the more comprehensive research program "Underwater Infrastructure and Underwater City of the Future" at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. The book serves as an essential guide both for the owners and the consulting and construction engineers involved in new and major concrete infrastructure design and construction.

This book provides an up-to-date survey of durability issues, with a particular focus on specification and design, and how to achieve durability in actual concrete construction. It is aimed at the practising engineer, but is also a valuable resource for graduate-level programs in universities. Along with background to current philosophies it gathers together in one useful reference a summary of current knowledge on concrete durability, includes information on modern concrete materials, and shows how these materials can be combined to produce durable concrete. The approach is consistent with the increasing focus on sustainability that is being addressed by the concrete industry, with the current emphasis on ‘design for durability’.

Throughout the last decades, the increasing development of the urban metropolis and the need to establish fundamental infrastructure networks, promoted the development of important projects worldwide and several Multi-Span Large Bridges have been erected. Certainly, many more will be erected in the next decades. This international context undoubtedly justifies the first International Conference on Multi-Span Large Bridges. The Multi-Span Large Bridges book contains the keynote lectures and the extended abstracts of selected papers presented at the Multi-Span Large Bridges International Conference (MSLB2015), organized by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, in cooperation with IST (Lisbon), University of Minho and LNEC, held in Porto, Portugal, from 1st to 3rd July, 2015. The most relevant themes covered in the book are: Landmark Projects, Conceptual Design, Innovative Construction Methods, Special Foundations and Geotechnical Site Investigations, Life Cycle, Monitoring, Maintenance & Management, Incidents and Accidents, New Materials and Special Devices, Extreme Loads, Rehabilitation, Safety and Serviceability, and Structural Analysis. The Multi-Span Large Bridges book shares the knowledge of several world experts, contains the description of relevant experiences and reports state-of-art achievements which, definitely, will be invaluable to bridge engineers, structural engineers and scientists.

Following the very successful 1st conference in Sapporo, Japan in 1995, the 2nd conference presents a series of papers on concrete structures which are subjected to severe environmental forces. Recent experience of the performance of concrete structures has demonstrated the need for a better integration of structural and durability design; the development of new design concepts; and an improvement in the basis for the operation and maintenance of concrete structures, including repair and retro-fitting. This book addresses all these important issues.

Reinforced concrete has the potential to be very durable and capable of withstanding a variety of adverse environmental conditions. However, failures in the structures do still occur as a result of premature reinforcement corrosion. In this authoritative book the fundamental aspects of this complex process are analysed; focusing on corrosion of the reinforcing steel, and looking particularly, at new scientific and technological developments. Monitoring techniques, including the newly developed online-monitoring, are examined, as well as the numerical methods used to simulate corrosion and perform parameter studies. The influence of composition and microstructure of concrete on corrosion behaviour is explored. The second half of the book, which deals with corrosion prevention methods, starts with a discussion on stainless steels as reinforcement materials. There are comprehensive reviews of the use of surface treatments and coatings, of the application of corrosion inhibitors and of the application of electrochemical techniques. In each case the necessary scientific fundamentals are explained and practical instances of use are looked at. This is an invaluable guide for engineers, materials scientists and researchers in the field of structural concrete. Fundamental aspects of corrosion in concrete are analysed in detail Explores how to minimise the effects of corrosion in concrete Invaluable guide for engineers, materials scientists and researchers in the field of structural concrete
