Durability is one of the most important requirements for built-environments. Federal, state, and local agencies expend significant effort to maintain the quality and condition of aging civil infrastructure, especially in aggressive service environments. Among many factors, durability influences the service life, integrity, and reliability of concrete materials and structures. Extensive research has been conducted to understand the deterioration mechanisms of concrete in an effort to extend the longevity of concrete members. This Special Publication (SP) contains nine papers selected from three technical sessions held during the virtual ACI Fall Convention in October 2021. Emphasis is placed on durable reinforcing schemes, service life prediction, structural integrity, repair and retrofit, corrosion mitigation, inspection techniques, and the application of state-of-the-art construction materials. All manuscripts were reviewed by at least two experts in accordance with the ACI publication policy. The Editors wish to thank all contributing authors and anonymous reviewers for their rigorous efforts. The Editors also gratefully acknowledge Ms. Barbara Coleman at ACI for her knowledgeable guidance.
