Abstract

Chloride ingress in cracked concrete leads to rapid corrosion of embedded steel reinforcement and a decrease of the expected service life. Corrosion monitoring experiments showed that a 300 μm wide crack caused initiation of corrosion of a rebar (Ø 10 mm) with a concrete cover of [...]

Abstract

The service life of buildings and components is extremely difficult to model and predict, mainly due to the uncertainty and variability associated with the degradation phenomena. These uncertainties are usually related with the intrinsic randomness of natural phenomena, such as [...]

Abstract

In order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, the construction sector is increasingly using clinker-reduced concretes. Concrete with high amounts of ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) show increased durability performance in certain environmental conditions compared to concrete [...]

Abstract

Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) encompass a higher thermal resistance per unit of thickness compared to any other kind of insulation. However, their aging has often shown some critical concerns among stakeholders. To support the broader use of VIPs in the building sector, a comprehensive [...]
