Initial Survey of Concrete Structures in Swedish Harbours – A Case Study in the Port of Trelleborg

Wall, Henrik LU and Nilsson, Lars-Olof LU (2005) International Conference on Concrete Repair, Rehabilitation and Retrofitting
Abstract
This paper is a case study on how to perform a survey of concrete structures in Swedish harbours. The purpose of the survey is to detect common damages and signs of deterioration on concrete structures in marine environment. The survey should consist of information about the structural design for the structures together with climatic conditions for the harbour in question, as well as documentation of existing damages on the structures. Information about the concrete mix is often found in structural drawings. If not, laboratory analysis is necessary for determining the composition of the actual concrete. In the climatic data information such as the dominant wind direction and wave action is given. The analysis of the climatic data should be... (More)
This paper is a case study on how to perform a survey of concrete structures in Swedish harbours. The purpose of the survey is to detect common damages and signs of deterioration on concrete structures in marine environment. The survey should consist of information about the structural design for the structures together with climatic conditions for the harbour in question, as well as documentation of existing damages on the structures. Information about the concrete mix is often found in structural drawings. If not, laboratory analysis is necessary for determining the composition of the actual concrete. In the climatic data information such as the dominant wind direction and wave action is given. The analysis of the climatic data should be combined with field studies at site for the full understanding of the climatic actions on the structures. The harbour chosen for this case study is the harbour of Trelleborg which is the second largest harbour in Sweden expressed in tonnage and has well functioning concrete structures from 1930 and onwards.
