He also highlighted about the Repair and reconstruction works on reinforced concrete structures which are not only expensive, but technically demanding tasks and very difficult to perform. He also insisted about the efficient structure management which is necessary to predict service life of new or already damaged structures utilizing a numerical model able to realistically simulate deterioration processes and its effects on safety of a structure.
