Abstract

This paper briefly presents the outcomes of a series of studies conducted by the author’s group on the service life prediction of concrete structures with frost damages.  The outcomes are the overall picture to predict the service life, which includes the meso scale approach for the deformation model under freeze thaw cycles and the simulation of mechanical and durability property degradation of frost damaged concrete.  At the end the remaining tasks for the better service life prediction are shown.
