Originální abstrakt

The performance-based approaches, sustainability and whole life costing have gained considerable attention in recent years. These approaches deal also with the durability and reliability of structures, both of these factors having pronounced economical and sustainability impacts. The level of reliability in the context of durability should be left to the client's decision as well as the appropriate serviceability criteria; unfortunately there is a lack of recognition from investors in this respect, in spite of the fact that the mutual impact of these values on the cost of the project may be crucial. So the durability implications in the context of reliability should be addressed during the design process and discussed with the client. Examples of user-friendly tools based on the probabilistic approach and models for degradation of concrete structures are briefly described, and some possibilities for applications are shown.
