The performance of concrete in a marine environment has assumed importance with the discovery of offshore gas and oil deposits. A collection of 33 papers from 12 countries, which opens with a review of durability of concrete in sea water. This is followed by a series of papers dealing with permeability and physio-chemical studies of cement pastes, mortars, and concretes exposed to sea water. Other papers describe the mechanisms of corrosion of reinforcing steel, case histories of performance of concrete in sea water, accelerated tests, and repair techniques. Research reports cover performance of lightweight concrete in sea water and use of corrosion inhibitors.
