Grey Correlation Analysis of Sensitive Factors of Concrete Structures Durability
Concrete structures durability is affected by a number of factors which have different sensitivity. According to level of sensitivity classified the influence factors could promote concrete structures durability design. The disadvantage of traditional methods of sensitivity analysis in concrete structures durability is the larger number of samples. The grey correlation theory was used to analyze the degree of the sensitivity of the influence factors and comparison with traditional methods of calculation. The results show that the grey correlation analysis method could quantify the levels of the sensitive factors and with higher reliability. A new way to study the durability of concrete structures was provided.
