Building a concrete structure is a significant outlay, and the lifetime performance of the structure needs to be considered. This is part of the increased focus on sustainability, but it is also about appropriate allocation of funds. Increasingly, establishing service life expectations are becoming a design consideration – and not just for large infrastructure projects. Not all service life prediction approaches are created equal – they have their own advantages and disadvantages. Selecting the right approach for use on a specific project can be a complicated process that has important downstream impacts. Different general service life prediction approaches are discussed, along with their advantages and disadvantages. Guidance for what needs to be considered when selecting the appropriate approach for a specific project is provided.
