AbstractThis Digest discusses how the useful life of a material in place is always related to the particular combination of environmental factors to which it is subjected. The Digest discusses these factors and stresses the importance of understanding behaviour of materials from the standpoint of their chemical and physical properties and the understanding of the chemical and physical processes involved in deterioration and change. The Digest closes with a short discussion of performance and testing.
