In this free online course about Corrosion of Embedded Metal and Reinforcement, you will be introduced to concrete structures and the corrosion that threatens their safety and durability. Throughout this video-based course, you will learn about the fundamentals of corrosion and the necessity to manage it. Also, the mechanism of corrosion are highlighted through carbonation-induced and chloride-induced corrosion.
Next, you will learn about the various construction materials that are available for steel rebars in particular. The necessity to resort to testing for the quality assessment of these rebars will be discussed. You will also learn about the TM – Ring Test used for assessing the quality of TMT / QST steel rebars. In this course, the manufacturing process of some of the rebars are particularly addressed, along with their reinforcement quality and corrosion prevention in prestressed concrete systems.
Finally, this practical course teaches you about how best to address corrosion and safeguard the safety and durability of concrete structures through a better choice of construction materials, rebars in particular, and their reinforcement. This course will be of interest to individuals, students in particular, specializing in civil engineering. Don’t wait!
