Environment conditions are the external factor that affect the durability of concrete structures. Especially, early-age cracking such as thermal cracking and drying shrinkage cracking influences concrete durability. Therefore, it is important to understand this external factor accurately in order to evaluate the durability of a concrete structure. Meteorological conditions such as the ambient temperature and humidity are especially important in an external factor because meteorological conditions influence deterioration such as the crack and the steel corrosion.
In this study, the seasonal fluctuation models of vapour pressure, ambient temperature and relative humidity were constructed by using the latest meteorological data.
