Abstract:
The Magnel laboratory was founded in 1926 and has a long-standing tradition in the study of a wide variety of aspects related to concrete and cementitious materials. The research focuses on the following topics:
- Structural behaviour of concrete;
- Concrete technology;
- Concrete and environment.

The marine research focuses on concrete durability in aggressive environments. The main topic in this field is the behaviour of concrete when exposed to chlorides and sulphates, mainly in a submerged marine environment. In order to study the marine degradation mechanisms more realistically, the combined attack of chlorides and sulphates is investigated. Furthermore, the influence of mechanical loading on the resistance against chloride penetration is also a research topic.

In addition, the influence of exposure to marine environments on the rebar corrosion process is investigated. A basic experimental characterisation of the concrete in terms of chloride and corrosion resistance should allow for an adequate service life prediction based on commonly-used models such as the one described in DuraCrete or fib Bulletin 34. In this context, specific attention is now being paid to self-healing concrete. Self-healing concrete is perceived as a possible solution to prevent early-age cracking and prolong the service life of concrete structures in marine environments (bridges, tunnels, port infrastructure, etc.).
