Since the major milestones of sustainability, such as the Hannover Principle in 1991 and the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, the concept of sustainability has been broadly adopted by various disciplines. New construction consumes considerable amounts of energy and materials, and CO2 emission in 2020 is expected to increase by 100%, compared with that of today. Technical communities are responsible for improving the sustainability of the built-environment by using more durable and highly efficient materials to reduce the need for replacement, maintenance, or repair. When subjected to aggressive environments, the performance of constructed concrete bridges and their elements is of interest from socioeconomic perspectives. Advances in a variety of aspects are required to achieve such a goal, including the durability of concrete members, performance monitoring technologies, evaluation methodologies, damage assessment, and structural rehabilitation. This Special Publication (SP) includes 10 papers selected from the three special sessions held at the ACI Fall convention in Washington, DC, October 2014. Each submitted manuscript has been rigorously reviewed and evaluated by at least two experts. The editors wish to thank all contributing authors and anonymous reviewers for their endeavors.
