In recent years, a number of new important concrete infrastructures along the Norwegian coastline have been constructed, and for most of them, the specified durability has mainly been based on the durability requirements according to the current concrete codes, with a water/ binder ratio of ≤0.40 and a binder content of ≥330 kg/ m3 (Standard Norway, 2003a, 2003b, 2003c). For new concrete coastal bridges, a water/ binder ratio of ≤0.38 has been specified (NPRA, 1996).
