In this paper, the hazard curve associated with airborne chlorides in a marine environment and the computational procedure to obtain the probability of occurrence of corrosion cracking in reinforced concrete (RC) structures are presented. A method for integration of the effects of airborne chloride into reliability-based durability design of RC structures in a marine environment is proposed. By using this method, it is possible to determine the probability of corrosion cracking due to airborne chlorides, regardless of region, distance from coastline, and the properties of the concrete controlled by the water to cement ratio.
