Investigation on the Index System for Durability of Concrete Bridges in Codes
This article surveys and studies the design, construction and verification codes related to durability of concrete bridges both home and abroad, contrastively analyzes their requirements on environmental effect, durability design, construction and testing indices, and finally brings up the durability index system suitable for Chinese concrete bridges which covers the four hierarchies of environment, material, components and structure, and also considers the three phases of design, construction and verification.
