New Trends and Technologies for Mitigating Reinforcing Steel Corrosion on Existing Structures, Part 1 of 2

Monday, October 24, 2022  8:30 AM - 10:30 AM, H-Reunion E

Billions of dollars are spent each year in the United States addressing damage to concrete structures caused by corrosion of embedded reinforcing steel. Costs to address damage from corrosion can increase exponentially as damage becomes prevalent and considerable life-cycle cost savings can be achieved through preventative maintenance and proactive mitigation of ongoing corrosion prior to the onset of extensive damage. A variety of techniques are available for protecting structures from deleterious exposures and impeding corrosion once initiated. These sessions will present some of the newer trends and technologies for protecting concrete and mitigating on-going corrosion.
Who should attend: Contractors, Engineers, Researchers, Manufacturers
Learning Objectives:
(1) Describe new technologies, trends and applications for mitigating on-going corrosion on existing structures;
(2) Identify the factors that impact service-life modeling for existing structures;
(3) Discuss novel cladding technologies for repair;
(4) Assess galvanic corrosion and cathodic protection systems.

This session has been AIA/ICC approved for 2 CEU/PDH credits.
