Abstract(s)In this paper is discussed the life cycle Of Steel and reinforced concrete structures using a simplified life cycle analysis. The developed methodology consisted in quantification of a series of parameters both economic and environmental that characterize both reinforced concrete and metallic structures. Based in the life cycle analysis, five parameters were selected in order to make the assessment, in witch: energy Consumption, water, CO2, SO2, NOx. A database was developed into a software program that can perform life cycle analysis of these types of structures giving their physical properties. As a result the software outputs the total amount of emissions caused by the production of a given structural element as well as determines the structural costs giving in the end a global project analysis.
