Although methods for managing internal corrosion are well established, many pipelines operators experience repeated internal corrosion incidents, suggesting opportunities likely exist for continuous improvement.
The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) and Canada’s Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy (FORCE) have kicked off a joint project to examine the differences in corrosion and underwater behavior of marine coatings on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
Efficiently managing the effects of concrete corrosion can extend the life of a building; however, concrete is not the only component threatened by corrosion. On any building, both the cladding and fasteners holding it in place are exposed to varying degrees of corrosion.
Researchers at North Carolina State University and the University of Eastern Finland are working on a novel technique for tracking water in concrete through the use of electricity.
A novel approach is presented regarding corrosion assessment and cathodic prevention of foundations for electric transmission towers in the Persian Gulf region.
A second generation of a polyaspartic urethane two-coat coating system with improved wet adhesion and corrosion resistance was developed in recent years for application in warm climates with high humidity.
Before a concrete structure can be coated, it is necessary to understand and overcome concrete's natural properties.
