Originální abstrakt

The durability of concrete structures is an important issue. Eurocode EN 206-1 introduces the k-value concept for concretes made with supplementary cementitious materials; a prescriptive concept that recommends limiting water/cement ratio values for a specified exposure class. A more advanced performance-based concept directly requires that concrete be designed in terms of performance-related parameters, an approach which seems to be more suitable when durability must be achieved. The application of mathematical models in durability assessment is advocated.
