Concrete structures are normally subject to harsh environmental conditions. Exposure to a wide range of aggressive substances can lead to the deterioration of concrete elements that results in a reduction of service life. CTLGroup’s concrete and cement-based materials experts have successfully assisted owners, contractors, and engineers with prevention of concrete deterioration and service-life extension of concrete infrastructure.
Our approach is based on a fundamental understanding of the physical, chemical, and electrochemical mechanisms that can affect the performance of aggregates, cementitious paste, reinforcing steel, or other material constituents of a concrete mixture. Our consulting experts have successfully designed, implemented, and administered concrete durability and corrosion protection plans. We can help you develop cost-efficient, practical, and functional approaches for the estimation of design service life of new infrastructure, and the evaluation of remaining service life of in-service structures.
