There are many factors that come in to play when determining how severe the internal exposure conditions of concrete sewer pipes will be. It is vitally important that a designer understand what level of performance they are expecting from materials, and how best to adapt the product to the conditions.

Thomas shares some in sight regarding the development of a Geopolymer concrete to aid in the elimination of “Microbial Induced Concrete Corrosion”.

Thomas discusses the following topics:

  • Sewer and acid attack of concrete.
  • Current design philosophies
  • Microbial Induced Concrete Corrosion
  • Case study.
  • Summary
