DURABILITY AND REPAIR ISSUES FOR PRESTRESSED CONCRETE STRUCTURES

DURABILITY AND REPAIR ISSUES FOR PRESTRESSED CONCRETE STRUCTURES

In this article, Ian Godson outlines the growing risk of corrosion caused deterioration to prestressed concrete elements and summarizes the investigation, repair and long term durability options for prestressed structures.

The use of Prestressed Concrete for construction of bridge, wharf and other civil structures expanded rapidly from the 1960’s onwards, due mainly to the increased spans and economy that it provided.

Insights on maximising the longevity of the marine infrastructure.

As a part of the design plan for Webb Dock, Colin Trewern, a Senior Maritime Engineer at Jacobs,  and our very own Dean Ferguson dived into making a case for durability amidst marine structures and surfaced with an award-winning paper for ‘Best Review’ at the Australasian Corrosion Association, 2016, hosted in New Zealand. One morning by the waterfront, we engaged these gentlemen in a conversation, learning about their findings and discussing the industry at large. We bring to you insights from their paper in an excerpt.
