PROJECT SUMMARY

The project report (published by CIRIA) provides new material to meet the need for best practice guidance on the use of marine concrete, and has been developed from existing UK, French and international research and practical experience. It includes guidance on all aspects of design, construction, inspection, monitoring and maintenance to lessen the impact of concrete degradation and increase the lifespan of defences and breakwaters.
