Abstract/Summary A modelling approach is presented here for quantitative projections of damage probability on port infrastructure, taking into account the variability of material type, design considerations and environmental exposures with a changing climate. This deliverable reports on the research undertaken in the development of material deterioration models and their responses to a changing climate load. Using climate information drawn from historical weather records and future climate projections, existing deterioration models were refined to include climate data into modelling runs in order to analyse changes to deterioration rates of different materials when impacted by a change in climate variables. Outputs from this modelling process will assist port authorities in making informed decisions on maintenance and capital budget planning which allow for impacts of climate change.
