General principles on the design of structures for durability
|Publication Date:||15 June 2008|
|ICS Code (Structures of buildings in general):||91.080.01|
This International Standard specifies general principles and recommends procedures for the verification of the durability of structures subject to known or foreseeable environmental actions, including mechanical actions, causing material degradation leading to failure of performance. It is necessary to ensure reliability of performance throughout the design service life of the structure.
Fatigue failure due to cyclic stress is not within the scope of this International Standard.
NOTE Reference can be made to ISO 2394 for failure due to fatigue.
