Presentation Overview

Lifecycle studies are undertaken to consider the whole cost of a structure including initial construction, maintenance and sometimes deconstruction or repurpose. Durability is the useful life of a material in performing its intended function.
In protective coatings we consider lifecycle costs in terms of initial application, maintenance and refurbishment until the end of required service life. Durability in terms of how long the coating will provide corrosion protection. Durability for protective coatings can be ascertained where there are project history’s that go back 60 years or more. Reliable information for steel structures exposed to;
• Atmospherically are provided in Australian Standard 2312.1
• Galvanized steel atmospherically exposed in AS 2312.2

However, there are no standardized durability ranges for;
• Coatings on concrete
• Coatings in immersed environments.

This presentation will provide case studies where lifecycle analysis is performed on steel and concrete structures protected by coatings. The discussion will also include where durability ranges can be obtained.
