Materials and Methods for Corrosion Control of Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete
This online engineering PDH course summarizes the results of various research investigations in developing and evaluating the performance of various corrosion protection systems. It describes materials and measures that can be used for corrosion control in reinforced and prestressed concrete bridge structures in new construction.
Salt-induced reinforcing steel corrosion in concrete bridges has undoubtedly become a considerable economic burden to many State and local transportation agencies. Since the iron in the steel has a natural tendency to revert eventually to its most stable oxide state, this problem will, unfortunately, still be with us, but to a much lesser degree due to the use of various corrosion protection strategies currently used in new construction. The adoption of corrosion protection measures in new construction, such as the use of good design and construction practices, adequate concrete cover depth, low-permeability concrete, corrosion inhibitors, and coated reinforcing steel, is significantly reducing the occurrence of reinforcing steel corrosion in new bridges.
This 8 PDH online course is applicable to civil, structural and geotechnical engineers, as well as design and materials and bridge engineers, reinforced concrete corrosion specialists, and those concerned with the performance of reinforced and prestressed concrete bridges.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
Understanding what factors affect the corrosion of reinforced concrete
Understanding the corrosion process
Learning about corrosion control measures
Learning about the general design and construction provisions
Knowing the measures for controlling corrosion in prestressed and post-tensioned concrete
Learning about corrosion inhibitors and other techniques
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the Federal Highway Administration, Publication FHWA-RD-00-081, "Materials and Methods for Corrosion Control of Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Structures in New Construction, August 2000".
