Durability of concrete structures has been the subject of academic debate since the early 1970s. Over past decades, a number of durability related problems have emerged and now the topic has become a major concern of infrastructure owners and operators. The purpose of this special issue is to highlight the key research progress in this important field and to present the original research related to modelling, monitoring and control of durability of concrete structures.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Transport of ions in cement and/or concrete materials
  • Material degradation
  • Influence of environments on durability of concrete structures
  • Design, monitoring and prediction for durability
  • Technologies used for repairing and maintaining in concrete related structures
Papers in relation to developing models based on experimental observations and identification, validation and calibration are particularly welcomed.
