TG2.1 - Serviceability models

TG2.1 - Serviceability models

 
  • Serviceability limit states (SLS) determine the applicability of concrete structures. When these criteria are met, the concrete structure can function properly during its service life. Correct design according to serviceability limit states is therefore essential for the construction of durable, robust and valuable structures. Violation of the SLS criteria leads to structures that do not function properly and/or to reduced durability, the consequences of which can be recognised very quickly. Therefore, the models for verification of the expected criteria are of primary importance.

    The activity of the group is focused on the development of models for analysis of cracks and deformations of concrete structures. Beside the sophisticated numerical models, engineering practice requires practical engineering approaches, which are applicable in codes and in preliminary design stages when important decisions on the conceptual design are accepted. The activity will be focused on new structures and also on existing structures for assessment, rehabilitation or strengthening.
