This is a recorded webinar from December 19, 2018.

Durability is a desirable property for all concrete structures. Ultimately, time is the true measure of durability. Without the luxury of time to wait to determine a structure’s durability, how do we define, measure, and achieve a durable concrete structure? Durable concrete structures should be long lasting. This is important for a functioning society. Every project’s acceptable length of service—how long the structure needs to be durable—will be different.

This presentation will discuss the importance of durability and current test methods. Topics covered in this presentation include:

• How to define durability

• Where to find durability requirements and guidance

• Commonly used durability tests for freeze-thaw and alkali-aggregate reactivity
