Concrete corrosion is a growing problem - one around which awareness is growing. In June, a huge condo tower in Florida collapsed as a result of concrete failure, killing 98 people. In July, the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure passed the INVEST in America Act, which emphasized the need for corrosion planning and qualified personnel on bridge construction, replacement and maintenance. Across the U.S. and worldwide, infrastructure ranging from office towers and parking garages to bridges, dams and irrigation structures, is at risk from concrete corrosion. This is a problem with significant impact, both for the corrosion industry and for communities at large.
In this webinar, we’ve pulled together experts in the field of concrete corrosion in order to cover some key aspects of this problem, including:
The causes of corrosion in reinforced concrete
How to assess structures for corrosion damage
Correction and rehabilitation methods and research
What the future holds for those working to prevent and mitigate concrete corrosion
