Abstract

The performance-based approach, published by the International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib), was applied for the design of a RC element in a marine environment, with corrosion resistant reinforcement, to analyse the potentiality of the model as well as the possible reasons which limit its use. Results showed that the fib model allows to compare different solutions and to consider the benefits connected with the use of preventative measures. However the definition of reliable values for some input parameters, as the critical chloride threshold for corrosion resistant reinforcement, is demanded to the designer and this aspect clearly limits a widespread use.
