Probabilistic capacity assessment of a prestressed concrete pile in a corrosive marine environment Schmuhl, Daniel T.; Shafieezadeh, Abdollah; Hur, Jieun


This study aims to provide a comprehensive method for modeling and analyzing prestressed concrete substructure elements, specifically wharf piles, subjected to chloride-induced corrosion. Fully understanding this process is crucial to capturing uncertainties in structural response and providing accurate predictions of its time-dependent degradation mechanisms. A probabilistic modeling framework and detailed finite element model and analysis are employed to explore these effects. Results indicate a high degree of uncertainty captured by the spatial and time-dependent modeling techniques in addition to multiple significant modes of failure represented that were not previously considered in structures of this type.
