oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Some modern trends in harbour engineering practice
In spite of modern techniques developed in the design and construction of reinforced concrete structures, corrosion of the reinforcement at the coast is still a source of much trouble. Great care is taken in choosing a properly designed concrete, the emphasis being on correct proportioning, the correct water-cement ratio, and adequate and thorough vibration. Yet difficulties in this regard arise and the saline atmosphere gets to the reinforcement and causes failure of the concrete.
