Thursday, 26 August 2021
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Zoom Webinar , Online, VIC CIA


Despite ongoing advances in concrete technology, the deterioration caused by corrosion is often a limiting factor in designing long-lasting concrete structures. Nonetheless, corrosion can be managed using cathodic protection and similar corrosion control systems to extend the life of both new and existing infrastructure.
The upcoming seminar covers –

  • optimising repair and protection solutions for corrosion damaged concrete infrastructure;
  • the use of cathodic protection systems to achieve long life for concrete in aggressive environments; and
  • a comparison of a range of corrosion protection systems available for the protection of reinforcement in concrete.

This webinar will be of interest to asset owners, designers and engineers.
Book soon to secure your spot for this popular event.

Topic Title
A Comparison of Anode Systems for Corrosion Protection of Reinforced Concrete
About this Presentation
From surface applied systems like flame sprayed zinc and conductive coatings, to embedded titanium/mixed metal oxide (MMO) or sacrificial anodes; there is a huge range of anode systems and arrangements which can achieve different design objectives. This presentation looks at the range of corrosion protection systems for concrete structures on the global market, discusses some considerations for anode system selection, and shares some case studies to demonstrate how the unique features of different anode systems have been beneficial for different types of projects.

Philip Karajayli - AECOM
Philip is an Associate Director in AECOM’s asset management team with more than 20 years’ experience in infrastructure condition assessments, life-cycle maintenance, corrosion management, cathodic protection design and durability. His industry experience spans across a wide range of infrastructure including bridges, tunnels and maritime assets across Australia and internationally. He has authored numerous technical papers on the subject and was involved in developing a civil infrastructure durability standard with Transport for NSW.
Title Title
Strategies for optimising repair and protection solutions to extend the life of concrete infrastructure
About this Presentation
Extending the service life of reinforced concrete infrastructure in aggressive environments within available budgets is a major challenge for asset owners. As we have seen in recent overseas examples of structural failures, condition of these assets must be monitored and action taken before an unacceptable level of risk is reached. This presentation will discuss strategies for optimising repair and protection solutions to balance cost and risk from a whole of life perspective.
Mohammad Ali – GHD
Mohammad Ali, a Principal of GHD, has a PhD in Civil Engineering with concrete cathodic protection (CP) specialisation. He has designed numerous cathodic protection systems in Australia and overseas during his 25 years of working life in Australia.  He has authored in excess of 50 technical papers mainly on concrete CP. He is a Fellow of Engineers Australia and a Past President of the Australasian Corrosion Association.
Topic Title
Lesson Learnt from 25 Years of Concrete Cathodic Protection (CP) and Maintenance in Australia
About this Presentation
Since the first major concrete cathodic protection (CP) installation in early 1990 in Australia, CP has become one of the main repair options for deteriorated marine structures. There are, however, issues with asset owners regarding the cost, performance, operation and maintenance of CP systems. Also, some asset owners have developed apprehension of CP due to the monitoring requirements of the impressed current CP system. The presentation will cover the author’s 25+ years  of CP experience in Australia and his view on CP regarding performance and monitoring.
