Evaluating Reliability of Buried Steel Structures Based on Diffusion Theory

About this talk

All design specifications for steel-reinforced concrete structures provide guidelines for the thickness of minimum concrete cover over the reinforcing steel. The thickness of the concrete cover is a function of many considerations such as cracking, migration of deleterious substances that can cause corrosion of steel, or constructability concerns. The webinar will introduce a fully probabilistic approach for prediction of corrosion in buried concrete structure and then demonstrate how the @RISK program can be used for addressing this complex problem using the Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) methodology.
