      • CE 5300-001 Deterioration of Infrastructure

        To impart the understanding of deterioration mechanisms and durability issues for infrastructure. The lectures are divided into four topic areas:
        (I) introduction/overview
        (Il) deep understanding mechanism of corrosion of steel and other metals,
        (III) degradation of Portland cement concrete, and
        (iv) degradation of organic materials.
        The physical, mechanical and chemical characteristics of deterioration for each material are discussed, and practical issues are presented. A research literature review exercise enables study in a particular topic related to material durability
