In this book, a critical analysis is made on service life models related to reinforcement corrosion. The contributors are on the frontier of knowledge in the field of durability of reinforced concrete. Topics covered in the book include: causes and mechanisms of deterioration, transport mechanisms in concrete, numerical modeling of concrete behavior, durability modeling and prediction, reliability approach to structural design for durability, structural behavior following degradation of concrete structures, deterioration and repair of concrete structures, and corrosion measurement techniques.

Corrosion Data Interpretation in Concrete Structures. Pitfalls and Practical Implications in Durability Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures. Microstructure and durability of slag cement mortars hardened under different relative humidity conditions. Study of corrosion rate variability in indoor and outdoor specimens. From corrosion rate to accumulated corrosion depth or loss in cross section of reinforcements. Steel Corrosion in a Chloride Contaminated Concrete Pore Solution with Low Oxygen Availability. Application of risk analysis in structural engineering – gas explosions. Hydrogen induced changes in structural properties of iron: Ab initio calculations. Corrosion initiation and propagation in cracked concrete – a literature review. Possibilities for improving corrosion protection of reinforced concrete by modified hydrotalcites – a literature review. Determination of the probable failure mechanisms and service life of offshore concrete gravity structures in the OSPAR Maritime Area - research proposal. Electrically accelerated transport of chlorides in concrete considering non-linear chloride binding in non-equilibrium conditions. Chloride binding related to hydration product.

Good mix of theoretical and applied papers
