For the ongoing condition assessment of concrete structures, it is necessary to identify the extent, nature, cause and prognosis of any deterioration using a range of tools and methods, including prediction models. Combined with the original design and construction details, this gives a vast amount of information over a long time period. A framework concept is therefore needed to process the entirety of the information in order to make sound investment decisions on future maintenance management.

To provide such a framework, fib Bulletin 59 summarizes information published in fib Bulletins 17, 22, 34 and 44 relevant to the control and assessment of reinforced concrete structures, and develops a practical concept of how, when and where to control the condition of an existing concrete structure in order to facilitate structural management. Thus it gives a basis for processing relevant information in order to make decisions on the appropriate course of action for condition control.
