TG1.2 - Concrete structures in marine environments
Well-designed, well-built concrete structures are particularly suited for the marine environment.
Well-designed, well-built concrete structures are particularly suited for the marine environment. Task Group 1.2 has so far focused on structures for oil and gas fields in hostile marine environments (fib Bulletin 50); now the focus will be on concrete structures in marine environments in general.
There are additional markets as well, even in urban areas, where societal activities could be effectively located on or in marine concrete structures. For example, artificial islands could be constructed for dwellings, offices, parking lots or other similar needs. Airports have also been considered. Urban infrastructure also has other potential applications, such as submerged floating tunnels, floating bridges and immersed tunnels.
In coastal areas, docks, fish farming, renewable energy and storage may be suitable applications. Ships and barges should also be considered.
