  • People who would like to learn about sustainable ways to manage reinforced concrete infrastructure

  • Students, Teachers & Lecturers

Why is corrosion such an issue?

Corrosion is the primary cause of structural failure and loss of performance of your reinforced concrete structures, which is due to a combined loss of tensile and compressive capacity.
