This presentation will discuss the importance of durability and current test methods. Durability is a desirable property for all concrete structures. Ultimately, time is the true measure of durability. Without the luxury of time to wait to determine a structure’s durability, how do we define, measure, and achieve a durable concrete structure? Durable concrete structures should be long lasting this is important for a functioning society. Every project’s acceptable length of service – how long the structure needs to be durable – will be different.

Learning Objectives:
1. Define durability.
2. Explain how exposure classes in ACI 318 and ACI 350 are used to design durable structures.
3. Identify common durability tests for freeze-thaw and alkali-aggregate reactivity.
4. Discuss the concept of a durability standard.
