Durability of concrete structures

Catherine French, University of Minnesota, USA

This paper provides a brief overview of Session 8 'Durability of Concrete Structures' of the fib 2002 congress on Concrete Structures in the 21st Century, which was held in Osaka on 13-19 October 2002. The keynote speaker of the session, Dr Odd E. Gjørv, Professor and Head of the Department of Building Materials at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology at Trondheim, has conducted concrete research for more than 40 years. His research has focused on a broad range of topics related to the durability of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures in severe environments. His paper addressed durability and service-life issues of concrete structures. In addition to the keynote address, more than 50 papers were considered for this session, covering topics in the following areas: general issues related to concrete serviceability and durability, corrosion of reinforcement, and grouting of post-tensioned systems, as well as several case studies. The highlights of some of the papers are described here.
