  This book looks at the mechanisms for corrosion and how corrosion engineering can be used for these problems to be minimized in future projects. Several different examples of reinforced concrete structures with corrosion problems are described and the various life enhancement solutions considered and applied are ://   CONCRETE Permeation and transportation mechanisms • In all chemical and physical processes influencing durability of concrete structures, two factors are dominant: 1. Transportation within the pore structures or cracks 2. Movement of water (often containing dissolved salts or gasses) • Permeation of water and gasses can be divided into Marine Concrete Structures: Design, Durability and Performance comprehensively examines structures located in, under, or in close proximity to the sea. A major emphasis of the book is on the long-term performance of marine concrete structures that not only represent major infrastructure investment and provision, but are also required to operate The durability of reinforced concrete structures is always distracted by the penetration of harmful ions such as chloride that leads to spalling, cracking and delaminating of concrete :// /_Durability_of_Reinforced_Concrete_Structures.

  Durability of Reinforced Concrete Structures, Theory vs Practice Albert K.H. Kwan and Henry H.C. Wong Department of Civil Engineering, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Abstract: The durability of concrete as a construction material and the durability of reinforced concrete structures under different environmental conditions are probably Concrete Durability is a comprehensive, practical guide for engineers involved in designing concrete structures of all types. Featuring contributions from leading practitioners and academics in the field, it combines a thorough but accessible exposition of the principles of durable concrete design with a practical, hands-on approach to its application in construction :// Durability Design of Concrete Structures: Phenomena, Modeling, and Practice [Li, Kefei] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.
