Description: Marine structures are subject to some of the harshest environmental conditions on the planet and are battered by repeated exposure to salt water, elevated average annual temperatures, and high humidity. In combination, these factors drive aggressive corrosion that can lead to reduced service life, increased operational costs and even safety concerns. While no two structures are the same, there are a wide array of technologies and treatments that can be employed to beat back corrosion and preserve marine structures of all kinds. This webinar will explore the wide array of corrosion protection options available today.

Description: Marine environments are among the most corrosive exposure conditions for reinforced concrete or steel structures. Tidal action, splashing and even airborne chlorides deposited on piling of any variety creates ideal conditions for corrosion. The effects of corrosion left unchecked can wreak havoc on marine structures. While the marine environment presents significant challenges for service life, there are proven methods of extending the life of both concrete and steel piles in fresh, brackish and even salt water. This webinar will compare the various marine pile protection options available today.

Description: Non-destructive Testing (NDT) as it relates to marine structure preservation is a set of tools commonly used to evaluate the health and capacity of an existing structure. NDT methods measure changes in electromagnetic, infrared or sonic data to assess a structure’s condition. This webinar will discuss some of these technologies and their applications in developing load ratings and assessing the condition of concrete piles, steel sheet piles, beams, slabs and other structural elements.

Description: Corrosion of the reinforcing steel is the #1 cause of concrete failure on marine structures. Before corrosion can be mitigated or brought to a halt, we must understand the underlying cause and quantify the magnitude and extent of corrosion risk. There are many destructive and non-destructive test methods that are effective in assessing corrosion risk. No one method will provide a complete assessment, but in combination can provide a holistic view of the structure’s health. This webinar will compare and contrast the various methods available today.
