Abstract

Reinforced concrete (RC) structures in a marine environment deteriorate with time due to chloride- induced corrosion of reinforcing bars. In this paper, a methodology for quantifying life-cycle reliability of RC jetties subjected to chloride attack is presented. The deterioration process of a RC jetty regarding the transition between the condition states is modeled as a Markov process. In addition, a procedure to obtain the transition probability matrix at time t after construction updated by the Sequential Monte Carlo Simulation (SMCS) method is indicated. Transition probability matrix could be updated in order to be consistent with the observational information. The methodology is illustrated on the superstructures of RC jetties located in a splash zone. The effect of the updating on the life-cycle reliability estimate of RC jetties is also discussed.
