Action Plan

The duration of RILEM TC 246-TDC is four years. To insure our work going on wheels, detailed working programme was made as follows.

Frist Year
2011.09-2012.09
Annotated bibliography and test method review
Second year
2012.10-2013.09
First series comparative test, evaluation of the results
Third year
2013.10-2014.09
Second series comparative test, organization of an international workshop
Fourth year
2014.10-2015.09
Recommendations for suitable test method,
organization of an international conference

 

First Year

An extensive literature study shall be made and a comprehensive annotated bibliography shall be published. The bibliography shall be focused on theoretical concepts to describe the action of combined loads and on appropriate test methods to determine properties of concrete under combined environmental mechanical loads. At this stage concrete shall be investigated as a composite material. The behaviour of real structures shall be postponed to a follow-up committee. Finally a detailed test program for first comparative test series shall be worked out and distributed among the core members of the TC. 

Second Year

Carrying out comparative test series in a number of participating laboratories (core group) according to detailed recommendations; evaluation of results and preparation of a summarizing publication. A second more specific series of comparative tests based on the results of the first test series is to follow. The most serious load combinations shall be identified and further studied. 

Third Year

Carrying out the second more specific series of comparative tests; evaluation of test results and pointing out the relevance for prediction of service life of reinforced concrete structures; Organization of an international workshop on Service life of Reinforced Concrete Structures under Combined Loads.

Fourth Year

Summarizing most important results and publication of conclusions; Elaboration of recommendations for durable construction of reinforced concrete structures and a state-of-the-art report; Organization of a conference on Prediction of Service Life of Reinforced Concrete Structures, Relevant Material Properties, and Most Severe Load Combinations.
