environmental Topic


Environmental engineering concrete structures provide conveyance, storage, and treatment of water, wastewater, and other materials. They include ancillary structures for dams, spillways, and channels. Environmental engineering concrete structures are subject to uniquely different loadings, more severe exposure conditions, and more restrictive serviceability requirements than non-environmental structures. Special design considerations need to be considered, such as loads, stability, and joint details. Exposures include concentrated chemicals, alternate wetting and drying, and freezing and thawing of saturated concrete. Serviceability requirements include liquid-tightness or gas-tightness.
