Committee 365 has developed a Design Specification for Performing a Service Life Prediction (not yet published). The purpose of this course would be to introduce this new upcoming document to the membership and the public. This would be of interest to engineers that perform service life modeling, Owners who are increasingly requiring service life as part of their project objectives, and contractors who are increasingly required to meet the requirements established by service life modeling. This course will discuss the role of the service life design engineer in delivering service life reports and specifying qualification and material performance testing. This course will further discuss challenges to obtain service life evaluations through service life modeling and analysis techniques in combination with incorporating owner service life requirements. The purpose of service life analysis is to produce more durable construction materials, including improved concrete mixtures, and more durable construction methods to better resist environmental exposures and extend predicted service life on concrete construction projects.
