A Probabilistic-Based Durability Analysis of Concrete Structures Exposed to Chloride Containing Environment
Time dependency of chloride transport has been studied and an improving model for predicting the apparent chloride diffusion coefficient has been proposed. A probabilistic-based durability analysis to estimate failure probability on the chloride ingress into concrete has been carried out. Results of the analysis demonstrate that the improving model in this paper is appropriate for long term service life prediction of concrete structures exposed to chloride containing environment.
