Performance evaluation of corrosion-affected reinforced

concrete (RC) members of infrastructural systems, espe-cially for those located in the marine environment. In this paper, a methodology for performance evaluation of rein-forced concrete structural members against chloride-in-duced corrosion of reinforcement, using the concept of performability, is proposed. Performability, defined as a

Additionally, the environmental impacts and cost were evaluated when these aggregates were used to replace 30% of the fine and coarse aggregates in concrete with a design strength of 24 MPa. The environmental impact of concrete that incorporated slag aggregate as the fine aggregates or bottom ash aggregate as the coarse aggregates were lower than that of concrete that incorporated natural

Fatigue Life Assessment Method for Prestressed Concrete

Concrete sleepers are one of the most important applications of a railway track system. Researchers have previously studied the impact load characteristics and ultimate load carrying capacity of a prestressed sleeper, but research on the fatigue life of prestressed concrete sleepers is limited. Fatigue damage of a prestressed concrete sleeper is mainly due to the accumulation of defects caused
