fib Bulletin 47, Environmental design of concrete structures – general principles, prepared by a former task group, covers the life cycle of concrete structures including manufacturing of materials, transportation, execution, maintenance, demolition, disposal and recycling. In an actual concrete structure, however, the requirements for structural performance and durability performance in addition to environmental performance must be satisfied in a well-balanced manner.
The scope of the activities of the task group is to show application procedures of environmental design to concrete structures to promote sustainable construction. Since the quantitative evaluation method of environmental aspects in the design and construction of concrete structures is still under development, a document to facilitate it, such as a manual, will be required to foster the incorporation of environmental aspects into the design and construction. Based on this document, various case studies will be conducted.
