Abstract: This paper attempts to show the concept of serviceability assessment of RC structures in marine environments using reliability approach. Models of the response of corrosion affected structures in each period of service life are developed based on experimental data produced from a comprehensive testing program. This includes corrosion initiation, corrosion induced concrete cracking and the evolution of crack width. A time-dependent reliability method is employed in the paper to determine the probability of the attainment of each period of service life. The methodology presented in the paper can equip structural engineers and asset managers with confidence in decision-making with regard to the repairs and strengthening of corroded concrete infrastructure.
