Abstract For the last 30 years research projects have been carried out to estimate the service life of RC structures subjected to environmental aggression, based on time-dependent models. These research efforts resulted in the implementation of performance-based methodologies in guide documents and European and national standards Reinforced concrete (RC) structures subjected to aggressive environmental exposure conditions are traditionally designed to satisfy safety, serviceability, durability and aesthetics requirements throughout their operational design service life
The service life of reinforced concrete (RC) structures in marine environments is mainly influenced by the chloride-induced corrosion of reinforcement, and the development of chloride penetration model is essential for its assessment Results show that bioproduct signiﬁcantly contributes to service life increase of RC structures with CEMIII/A. The repair solution with self-healing behaviour not only increases RC service life, but also enables us to decrease the required cover thickness from 60 mm to 50 mm in an XS2 chloride environment Abstract For a long-span coastal bridge structure, the corrosion initiation time is controlled by the speed of chloride ions transfer and the depassivation process within the structure. These processes are significantly influenced by the actual variation of the environmental conditions on the concrete surface throughout its service life
Considering design service periods of 50 and 100 years for different RC structures and the use of blended cements, doubts still remain whether the traditional design of concrete with prescribed composition is a viable way or if performance-based design may lead to more realistic estimates of RC durability
Corrosion inhibitors' performance is assessed through a probabilistic calculus of the design service life of RC structures Symptom-Based Reliability Analysis and Remaining Service Life Prediction of Deteriorating RC Structures Tian-Li Huang1,2,a, Hua-Peng Chen2,b 1School of Civil Engineering, Central South University. This structure has been in service for well over 2000 years. If Roman concrete can last for centuries, surely current construction materials should be suitable to serve a 50 or 100 year design life. In some ways, assumptions on material durability may have influenced early specifications which fail to address material performance over time The service life of a RC structure depends on it withstanding the dominant deterioration mechanisms over an acceptable and 'predictable' time period
Service Life Service life of a RC structure can be defined as time period during which structure will fulfill the required performance under defined repair and maintenance. Zhang and Ba [ 3 ] defined service life as the life before critical chloride concentration led to reinforcement corrosion The water to cement ratio and concrete cover to satisfy the target reliability level are provided. For evaluating the service life of existing structures, the condition state based on the visual inspection of RC structure can be provided. The deterioration process of the RC jetty structure can be modelled as a Markov process
For a long-span coastal bridge structure, the corrosion initiation time is controlled by the speed of chloride ions transfer and the depassivation process within the structure. These processes are significantly influenced by the actual variation of the environmental conditions on the concrete surface throughout its service life Concrete mix design for service life of RC structures exposed to chloride attack Seung-Jun Kwon and Sang-Chel Kim : Abstract The purpose of this research is to propose a design technique of concrete mix proportions satisfying service life through genetic algorithm (GA) and neural network (NN). For this, thirty mix proportions and the related.

SERVICE LIFE PREDICTION FOR CRACKED RC STRUCTURES Much research on both structural and non-structural effects of corrosion on the performance of corrosion-affected RC structures has been conducted and as a result, a number of service life prediction models have been developed. These models predict service life b RC_LifeTime offers the following options: Service Life Assessment - a statistical evaluation of service life, where optionally the target value of reliability index ß may be an additional input value and then the corresponding service life is the output value; Concrete Cover Assessment - a statistical evaluation of concrete cover value for. This paper proposes a symptom-based reliability analysis method for deteriorating reinforced concrete (RC) structures on the basis of monitored data. The structural flexural resistance due to reinforcement corrosion is selected as a symptom which reflects the deteriorating structural performance. The symptom reliability and remaining service life are then estimated from the Weibull model for.

A service life prediction of RC structures subjected to chloride attack is carried out by using a micro-mechanics based corrosion model. The service life prediction model is composed of a chloride penetration model and carbonation model to evaluate the initiation of corrosion and a steel corrosion model to evaluate the rate and the accumulated. Service life of structures can be defined as the duration for which the structure is able to meet the desired performance with sufficient safety. Many structures are designed and constructed keeping this in mind. However, many of the prestressed concrete structures worldwide, constructed in the last 50years, have started showing the signs o This paper describes the service life of the reinforced concrete (RC) structures in chloride laden environments.

Engineers can appreciate the consequences of design options on the service life of RC structures, while owners of RC structures can have information about how long their RC structures may last before any repair is envisaged Chloride ingress and carbonation lead to corrosion of reinforcing bars and therefore reduce the service life of reinforced concrete (RC) structures.
