DETERIORATION OF CONCRETE OR
WHAT WE REALLY KNOW, AND WHAT WE THINK TO KNOW,
IN A WORLD FULL OF TECHNOLOGY, WHY WE ARE NOT ABLE TO SAY THAT A STRUCTURE IS NOT CAPABLE TO DO HIS JOB ANYMORE?
IS THE CONCRETE OF AN EXISTING STRUCTURE
SOMETHING THAT WE CAN CALL HOMOGENEOUS?
• Is the adherence between steel rebars and concrete of an existing building
something that we can really call “PERFECT”?
STEEL REBARS AND CONCRETE, MANY YEARS AFTER THEIR FIRST
KISS, ARE STILL A GOOD COUPLE ?
ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND THAT AFTER YEARS, CONCRETE
DEGRADE, STEEL DEGRADE, ADHERENCE CAN DEGRADE, BUT
THE LOADS WHICH SUBJECT YOUR STRUCTURE HAVE MORE
PROBABILITY TO BE HIGHEST
