dc.description.abstractSustainability is a new and settled concept in advanced societies, even though the term is sometimes inappropriately used, which may represents a threat. For this reason it is suitable to supply methods of measuring sustainability. Given that the sustainability concept involves distinct requirements and criteria, it seems reasonable to use multi-criteria methods in the decision making process. This work shows a brief review of such methods applied to concrete structures. The MIVES method is applied in this work for assessing the sustainability of the concrete structures. Three examples are proposed to show the capacity of the method. One of them is based on the general application of the Spanish Structural Code for Concrete Structures (EHE-08), and the other two assess the sustainability of reinforced concrete columns by adopting distinct type of concrete and building procedures.
