Performancebased approach to durability of concrete

Performancebased approach to durability of concrete

A framework for use of durability indexes in performance

Performance-based specifications may offer greater advantages in improving concrete durability, but to be viable require suitable quality parameters to be defined and measured. In South Africa, a 'Durability Index' (DI) approach has been developed to address these concerns.

Service-Life Design for RC Infra to be Repaired by

Apr 01,  · This article introduces the methodology for durability design of concrete repairs for infrastructures affected by deterioration in mid-life. A change of design approach is recommended, from the conventional “prescriptive approach” practiced by current design standards to performance-based approach” which considers the actual ageing process through probabilistic treatment.

PERFORMANCE-BASED SPECIFICATION AND CONTROL OF DURABILITY

Service life and durability of reinforced concrete structures depend primarily on the penetrability and thickness of the concrete cover. Currently, durability specifications in most Codes and Standards are based mainly on establishing constraints to the proportions of the concrete as function of the severity of the exposure. This approach ignores, to a large extent, the different performance

How NY could become a model for green concrete policy

The best outcome is to simply burn less of anything. Fortunately, one of the least expensive and fastest ways to reduce the embodied carbon in concrete is to find alternatives to cement. So, a performance-based approach will lead to using less cement and thus less burning of solid waste, or anything else, in kilns. 6.

mixture proportioning of concrete Topic

Mixture proportioning refers to selection of the proper amount of ingredients to make a batch of concrete. Selecting concrete proportions involves a balance between economy and requirements for placeability, strength, durability, density, and appearance. The required characteristics are governed by how the concrete will be used and by conditions expected to be encountered at the time of placement.
