Abstract: Since material degradation is inevitable in reinforced concrete structures it is important to assess how concrete structure deteriorate, Le., determine the residual capacity and subsequent lice cycles of the structure. The intention of this paper is to present an experimental program aiming to investigate strength and serviceability deterioration of concrete structures, exemplified by corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete. Data produced from the experiment is used to develop deterioration models for concrete structures. With the deterioration models a life cycle assessment of concrete structures is possible. For this purpose, a method, for life cycle assessment, which is based on time-dependent reliability theory, is outlined.
