ABOUT THE WORKSHOP on Corrosion Control in Concrete Structures (C3S)
This course is designed to help students and faculty members in civil engineering, and practicing civil engineers to learn the basics of corrosion mechanisms in concrete structures and ways to protect the embedded steel from corrosion (in both existing and new structures). In particular, sufficient reading materials will be provided to enable further learning and be able to teach elective courses and practice good concrete engineering/corrosion control/construction practices. The lectures and laboratory sessions will cover the following topics with a blend of scientific principles behind, and the research- and practice oriented viewpoints.


  • Corrosion mechanisms in concrete structures
  • Principles of corrosion testing
  • Durability-based design of concrete
  • Coatings for steel reinforcement
  • Cathodic protection systems
  • Admixed corrosion inhibitors for new structures
  • Migrating corrosion inhibitors for existing structures
  • Field applications of various corrosion control systems
  • Visits to the Concrete/Corrosion Research Labs
