Deterioration Investigation and Assessment

Chloride induced corrosion of steel in concrete and spalled concrete.png

Reinforced Concrete

Evaluation and identification of deterioration mechanisms for reinforced concrete including:

  • Chloride induced corrosion of steel-reinforced concrete

  • Carbonation induced corrosion of steel-reinforced concrete

  • Influence of stray current on steel-reinforced concrete durability

Metallic Structures

Evaluation and identification of deterioration mechanisms for metallic structures including:

  • Accelerated Low Water Corrosion ALWC

  • Microbial induced or assisted corrosion

  • Soil corrosivity assessment

  • Crevice and pitting corrosion of stainless steels and other corrosion-resistant alloys

  • Influence of stray current interaction from foreign CP, DC metro, or traction systems

  • Atmospheric corrosion

  • Bi-metallic corrosion

  • Concentration or differential oxygenation corrosion

  • Protective coating failures
