Abstract: Traffic emissions caused by corrosion of a hypothetical reinforced concrete composite bridge located in coastal Norway were assessed following a performance-based durability engineering framework. Emissions caused by load rating due to corrosion damage were found significant in the structure‟s total life-cycle emissions. Sensitivity and scenario assessments demonstrate that emissions predictions were influenced by model selection and assumed socioeconomic trends. The case study was used to evaluate the usefulness of the performance based durability engineering framework and to identify aspects needing improvement.
