The role of strong and durable concrete constructions is enable our society to be more sustainably and healthier.  However, it is recognized that the diverse deteriorated factors can contribute to the major damages of concrete structures in durability, bearing capacity and so on during their service life. Such impacts are susceptible to induce early-stage deterioration and aging on concrete structures, challenging the safety hazards and security threats to human.
