Extending Service Life of Reinforced Concrete Structures

The Phases of Concrete Service Life – Tuutti’s and Song’s Models In Tuutti’s model, the service life of reinforced concrete structures is divided into two phases: initiation and propagation. The initiation phase is the span of time it takes for reinforcing steel corrosion to initiate. The rate of carbonation and chloride migration ...

Apr 26, 2012  It is well known that the chloride in concrete can result in rebar corrosion. Due to the expansive nature of rust, rebar corrosion deteriorates the reinforced concrete structures by creating damages in the concrete around the rebar such as cracking and spalling, which affect the durability and service of life of reinforced concrete structures.

Estimating service life of reinforced concrete structures ...

Apr 14, 2021  Pozzolanic additions, especially high reactive pozzolans, such as silica fume and metakaolin, currently stand out as the main alternatives for increasing the mechanical strength and resistance to the penetration of deleterious agents in concrete. Thus, the use of these materials will result in a longer service life of reinforced concrete structures exposed to aggressive environments.
