The aim of this Recommended Practice is to provide designers, specifiers and users of concrete with guidance on the provision of durable concrete structures by alerting them to potential problems that may occur at any phase from concept to completion. Section 2 provides a discussion of environmental factors and the service conditions that can influence concrete durability. In many instances these are outside the control of the designer and hence must be considered and accounted for at the design stage. The various deterioration processes in concrete and their governing factors are then discussed in Section 3. An understanding of these factors is a precondition for the ability to take the right decisions when seeking the required durability. Section 4 covers the properties and specification of the concrete itself, while Section 5 covers factors relating to design and detailing, and on-site practices appropriate for the construction of durable concrete structures.
