Why Choose this Training Course?

Corrosion is a common and a very expensive problem in most industries. It becomes very obvious in concrete structures where the steel reinforcement becomes exposed to the atmosphere and various other chemical species. Examples include aggressive agents such as carbon dioxide, de-icing agents and sea water, etc., that can diffuse into moist concrete where corrosion of the steel reinforcement will eventually result. Corrosion products may start to crack the concrete, leading to more exposure of the steel reinforcement. Hence, an accumulative destructive cycle of concrete and reinforcement degradation is set up, leading to the eventual failure of the structure.

This 5-day intensive PetroKnowledge training course provides participants with fundamental principles of corrosion and concrete system corrosion, helping participants recognise problems attributed to corrosion, determine their causes and then select relevant inspection, maintenance and control methods. This is vital for any company hoping to avoid the high maintenance and failure costs associated with corrosion.

This training course will feature:

  • Corrosion principles and mechanisms
  • Types of corrosion that are related to concrete systems
  • Corrosion minimisation, control and methods of protection
  • Properties of materials of construction
  • Corrosion monitoring and inspection methods
  • Aspects of corrosion management
