Design Series - Webinar Wednesdays
This Free Webinar Wednesday Program focused on the latest developments in corrosion technologies. Each webinar is 1 hour in length. Professional development certificates approved by the National Council of Structural Engineer Associations (NCSEA) are available for all participants.
Please scroll down the page to view the presentation and recordings for each previous webinar or visit our YouTube channel for the recording.
At this time, there are no upcoming Design Series events.
Galvanic anodes in a brand-new structure? Thinking ahead about corrosion allows asset owners to be prepared for its eventuality while also removing the otherwise unavoidable repair cost and downtime. George Sergi, the father of the original embedded galvanic anode for concrete, has prepared a How-to presentation for identifying high-risk elements and utilizing maintenance-free galvanic protection to extend the service life of concrete structures without the need for repair. This presentation is most beneficial for those currently specifying systems, those new to the industry or with a general interest in galvanic technology.
Over the past 20+ years, Vector Corrosion Technologies has learned a great deal about how galvanic anodes perform, age and protect steel in reinforced concrete over time. Variables like surface to mass ratio of the zinc core, the zinc core activation method and the environmental exposure conditions including the level of chloride contamination, moisture and temperature. In this presentation, Dave will be going beyond the datasheet to explain just how these factors govern the service life of zinc based cathodic protection systems.
