Abstract:
The design life of the major Assets and Asset Components of the Port Botany Container Terminal Expansion Project in Sydney is 100 years. Durability assessment, durability design and durability planning was an integral part of the delivery phase for the detailed design process to minimise the risks of long term deterioration of the structural Assets and Asset Components. This paper details the durability approach undertaken, design durability risks identified and the durability design details adopted. Ternary blended (52% SL cement, 25% Fly ash, 23% Blast furnace slag) cement based S50 grade concretes were proposed for construction of the major Assets and Asset Components. Design covers proposed were typically 75 mm.
