Protecting steel-reinforced concrete marine structures from corrosion
Protecting steel-reinforced concrete marine structures from corrosion
The major cause of deterioration on steel-reinforced concrete structures located in marine environments is corrosion of the reinforcing steel.
Characterizing severe bridge pile corrosion in a marine environment
Characterizing severe bridge pile corrosion in a marine environment
Divers conducting inspections of the Mickler-O'Connell Bridge detected heavy corrosion of the steel H-piles. Researchers suspect microbiologically influenced corrosion caused localized degradation.

Corrosion basics: Testing protective coatings
Coating operations of almost any size must include some type of meaningful test program.
'Potential life safety hazards' forcing closure of Pittsburgh Public Works facility
'Potential life safety hazards' forcing closure of Pittsburgh Public Works facility
A Public Works facility in Pittsburgh’s Knoxville neighborhood is closing after it was found to be structurally deficient, two years after a WPXI-TV investigation exposed the poor conditions. That report first revealed pictures from inside the b...
