The risk of corrosion in marine structures is subject to multiple factors, in particular the exposure zones of structures when they are below the seabed or in permanently submerged zones. New innovations have assisted ports in maintaining and preventing the erosion of these structures, however continuous repairs and protection is needed for long term planning.
With a number of advances in the investigation and technology for deteriorating structures, combining these into a clearly defined plan of action will be key to diagnosing priority repairs and investment, but how do you keep the costs down and save resources in this area?
What the workshop will cover:
- Understanding the risk of concrete deterioration and erosion
- Technology and materials that set structures up for the long haul
- Succeeding in implementation stages for new additions to existing structures
- Minimising destructive monitoring techniques through lower impact preventative measures
