Abstract:Paper acquaints those interested in concrete durability with the scope and duration of a new long-term field and laboratory testing program which began in 1989 and will continue through 2004. It has been commissioned by the Reinforced Concrete Research Council (RCRC) of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and is designed to compare the effects of warm and cold seawater environments on the durability of reinforced and prestressed concrete elements made using concrete materials and additives which have become available over the past 15 years. It is a follow-up study to those conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and guided by the RCRC, during the period 1950 through 1976.
