This project aims to investigate the correlation of damage data gathered at the material scale with the overall performance of aging structural members.
This study will provide JCCBI with testing and analytical tools to quantitatively assess the state of deterioration and structural integrity of members because of damage induced by reinforcement corrosion, freeze/thaw cycles and alkali-aggregate reaction.
