A front-line perspective on Fighting Corrosion in Marine Structures through Effective repairs and protection

  • How do port and coastal structures live and die?
  • What are the chronic diseases such as concrete deterioration?
  • What could be the catastrophic sudden death syndromes for Australian ports?
  • What are the tensions between risks, extended life, and how might an owner indemnify against sudden death?
  • Where does fatigue fit in?
  • Can an untimely death of structures be delayed?
  • What are tunable super absorbent polymers?
  • Where steel meets concrete …. Can we do better?
  • Are there innovative financial models for limited maintenance funding?
