The construction of transport tunnels has had a renaissance in Australia over the past 10 years. The majority of tunnels being built across the country require asset lives of 100-120 years or more. Ensuring the durability of long life assets can be complex. Ensuring the durability of concrete in underground environments, particularly where ground conditions are aggressive, water pressures are high and tunnel leakage service level requirements are onerous is a challenge.
In this webinar, Rob Kilgour, a leading practitioner in infrastructure durability planning will provide some background on the key deterioration mechanisms applicable to concrete in tunnels. The importance of geochemical data in the assessment of exposure conditions and developing and understanding the operational constraints of these assets will be addressed. Key performance parameters designers and specifiers of concrete for tunnels need to consider early in the project lifecycle will also be identified.

Sean Windred (BG&E) will provide delegates with an overview of  destructive and non-destructive testing and analysis methods to predict the remaining life of existing concrete structures.
