Abstract: Concerning the durability of concrete, Annex F of European Standard EN 206-1 gives recommendations for limiting values of concrete composition. The in-situ performance and durability related properties measured in laboratory of eight concrete mixtures were evaluated. The composition of these mixtures fulfils the limiting values of different exposure classes related to carbonation-induced corrosion and chloride-induced corrosion, as defined in EN 206-1. Correlations between laboratory properties and in-situ performance are presented. This approach is intended to be used as a basis in defining performance-related design methods with respect to durability.
