Durability is a desirable property for all concrete structures. Ultimately, time is the true measure of durability. Without the luxury of time to wait to determine a structure’s durability, how do we define, measure, and achieve a durable concrete structure? Durable concrete structures should be long lasting this is important for a functioning society. Every project’s acceptable length of service – how long the structure needs to be durable – will be different. This presentation will discuss the importance of durability and current test methods. Topics covered in this presentation include:

• How to define durability

• Where to find durability requirements and guidance

• Commonly used durability tests for freeze-thaw and alkali-aggregate reactivity
