Detection and Prevention of Corrosion in Structural Engineering

Call for Papers

Modern engineering structures are typically constructed using steel and concrete materials which are frequently involving corrosion problems. Thus, the deterioration due to corrosion is a practical issue in the safety assessment of structural engineering designs. In order to protect structures from corrosion, various types of coating and cathodic protection systems are employed. A proper design and application of the corrosion protection structural system is important to achieve a good performance.

The aim of this special issue is to provide an opportunity for researchers to exchange the recent development in the detection and prevention of corrosions in structural engineering. We welcome all the new findings on the corrosion mechanism in structural engineering practices to be reported in this special issue. Contributions to the methodology in damage detection, risk prevention, structural control, and optimal design related to corrosion problems are also encouraged. Therefore, this special issue invites all latest research developments within the theme of corrosion problems in structural engineering to include the following indicative topics.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Corrosion mechanism in structural engineering practices
  • Structural identification for corrosion damages
  • Corrosion based structural reliability analysis
  • Infrastructure corrosion problems
  • Offshore structural corrosion deteriorations
  • Optimal maintenance strategies and protection techniques for corroded structures
