SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING
Fundamentals of Concrete Durability and Steel Reinforcement Corrosion
Dr. Mohamad Nagi
Director of Infrastructure Sustainability & Assessment Center
The Middle East, and the Gulf region in particular, is home to one of the world’s most corrosive environments for concrete structures. This places critical infrastructure components at risk of accelerated deterioration and makes durability one of the region’s key considerations when forecasting the expected service life of reinforced concrete structures. This course will inform engineers on how to properly account for the durability of reinforced concrete structures by introducing the mechanisms responsible for reducing a structure’s durability (e.g., corrosion, sulfate attack, alkali silica reactivity) and providing design & construction strategies that can mitigate the effects of corrosion on a structure’s service life.
