Assessment and reparation of structures

Assessing techniques for a proactive maintenance of structures, studying degradation processes that affect them and possible actions to be taken.

  • Application of nondestructive techniques (electrical, electromagnetic , ultrasonic or thermographic) for the evaluation of structural materials : Civil Engineering , Architecture, special nuclear containment structures, historical heritage .
  • Application of electrochemical non-destructive techniques for quantifying the corrosion rate .
  • Advanced repair techniques to be applied in damaged reinforcement structures due to corrosion problems : Cathodic protection (CP), electrochemical chloride extraction ( ECE), Realkalisation (RA ) Introduction of substances with different properties such as corrosion inhibitors.
