This Workshop brought together experts for the purpose of defining the current state-of-the-art with respect to modelling aging of concrete structures and providing recommendations (to the extent possible) for a unified approach to facility management. The Workshop provided an international forum for highlighting recent advances in the technology underlying aging management and service life prediction of concrete structures. Approaches to service life prediction, performance monitoring, and aging management of industrial buildings, bridges and other transportation structures, dams and navigation facilities were presented and critically appraised. The Workshop updated participants on research, present novel ideas and strategies for management of aging of infrastructure-related facilities. The Workshop strongly emphasised the practical aspects and the links between research and real applications. Targeted readership of these proceedings includes designers and engineers, facility managers, researchers and regulators.
