    The ability of concrete to withstand the conditions for which it is designed without deterioration for a long period of years is known as durability. Durability of concrete may be defined as the ability of concrete to resist weathering action, che. The Study of Concrete Durability in the Case of Jinan Yellow River Highway Bridge With the rapid development of road construction in China, reinforced concrete has Jinan Yellow River Highway Bridge located in Jinan (the capital city of Shandong) was built .

    The quantity of cement used in the concrete mix is a major factor affecting the durability of concrete. If the cement content used is lower than the required, then the water-cement ratio; gets reduced and concrete workability also gets decreased.; Adding more water to this concrete mix results in formation of capillary voids which will make concrete a permeable material inviting deterioration.   This book is concerned with the long term durability of concrete as a structural material as used in the construction of buildings, bridges, roads, marine and civil engineering structures. It discusses the fundamental reasons for the deterioration of concrete over time and available techniques for detecting, remedying and preventing the.

    Concrete industry sustainable construction strategy; Vibration control; Durability. Concrete has been recorded in existence as long ago as 7,BC. It was used by the ancient Egyptians and the Romans used it to build the Colosseum and Hadrian's Wall. Throughout history, concrete has proven itself to be a most flexible and durable construction. Durability definition, able to resist wear, decay, etc., well; lasting; enduring. See more.

Concrete durability Concrete Durability is a comprehensive, practical guide for engineers involved in designing concrete structures of all types. Featuring contributions from leading practitioners and academics in the field, it combines a thorough but accessible exposition of the principles of durable concrete design with a practical, hands-on approach to its application in construction projects.

Durability is defined as the capability of concrete to resist weathering action, chemical attack and abrasion while maintaining its desired engineering properties. It normally refers to the duration or life span of trouble-free performance.

Different concretes require different degrees of durability depending on the exposure environment and properties desired. Concrete ingredients, their proportioning, interactions between them, placing and curing practices, and the service environment determine the ultimate durability and life of the concrete.

[Mark G Alexander; Arnon Bentur; Sidney Mindess] -- "This book provides an up-to-date survey of durability issues, with a particular focus on specification and design, and how to achieve durability in actual concrete construction.

It is aimed at the. The interface behavior of FRP-concrete assemblies is preliminarily evaluated under Mode-I fracture. To improve the performance and durability of the structures that are built of conventional construction materials (for example, wood and concrete), FRP composites are increasingly being used as reinforcement for wood and concrete.

Since many durability problems also can be related to poor quality control as well as special problems during concrete construction, the issue of construction quality and variability must also be. The durability specification indicated which elements of the site concrete would be tested and what the acceptable limits and frequencies for the tests were to check compliance of the concrete during construction.

Concrete testing program. A durability test was required that would be simple to conduct and could be performed in a short time by. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback.
