This paper presents a model for predicting service lives for glass-fibre reinforced cement (grc) components using hot-water accelerated ageing. It improves on previous models, being derived from consideration of a specific proposed micro-mechanical strength loss mechanism based on static fatigue principles and can be applied from time = 0. The model fitted well to all available strength vs. time data pertaining to various grc formulations. The activation energies thus derived for the strength loss process (80-90 kJ mol(-1)) were consistent with those derived previously and those proposed for general glass dissolution mechanisms. Updated acceleration factors for predicting service lives for grc are advanced. The model was also applied to grc made with modified cement matrices. For metakaolin modified matrices, the activation energy appeared similar to that for OPC-grc, thus the use of similar acceleration factors appears justified. There is some evidence that calcium sulphoaluminate modified grc degrades according to a different activation energy. More data are required for modified matrix grcs if the model is to be applied thereto with confidence. (C) 2001 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
