Steel Reinforced Concrete Structures Evaluation and Restore of Corrosion Second Version by Mohamed El-Reedy
PREFACE to Steel Reinforced Concrete Structures
Deterioration of strengthened concrete constructions has been one of many main challenges dealing with civil engineers over the previous 20 years.
Concrete constructions have been well-known for being upkeep free. Over time, nevertheless, it was discovered that nothing is free and that it was obligatory to extend spending if one didn’t know the right way to take care of deterioration of concrete constructions.
The main issue inflicting concrete deterioration is corrosion of metal reinforcements, so it is vitally necessary to know this difficulty completely.
This e-book goals to be a handbook for strengthened concrete construction upkeep for use as a information for junior and senior engineers working in design, building, restore, and upkeep.
Furthermore, the e-book has been written in a approach that’s straightforward for civil engineers to know—with none difficult chemical reactions—and to assist researchers with very sturdy theoretical background within the area.
The e-book consists of three important approaches. First, Chapters 1 by 3 describe the corrosion phenomenon of metal in concrete, the impact of concrete properties on corrosion, and the precautions taken in building to manage corrosion.
The second strategy considerations the analysis of concrete constructions and completely different strategies to guard metal reinforcement from corrosion.
The final two chapters describe essentially the most conventional and superior restore strategies. Furthermore, Chapter 9 focuses on a complicated upkeep plan philosophy as a risk-based upkeep for strengthened concrete constructions.
As the primary version was efficiently distributed amongst completely different industries and is taken into account to be a reference for a lot of analysis research and theses,
for this new version I added the latest analysis research and improvement actions that have been carried out within the space of corrosion of metal bars within the final 10 years and in addition the latest strategies for the safety and restore of concrete constructions that deteriorate as a consequence of corrosion of metal bars.
As science and therefore related applied sciences are up to date often, and because the important goal of this e-book is to supply a sensible answer with a powerful theoretical background, new strategies in inspection and restore have been up to date to match the present market state of affairs.
This e-book is a sensible information to the artwork of concrete construction restore and upkeep. It contains case histories from all around the world to help the reader in appreciating the widespread functions and vary of superior restore strategies.
ABOUT the Author of Steel Reinforced Concrete Structures
Dr. Mohamed Abdallah El-Reedy’s background is in structural engineering. His important space of analysis is the reliability of concrete and metal constructions.
He has offered session for various oil and gasoline industries in Egypt and to worldwide firms, such because the Worldwide Egyptian Oil Firm (IEOC) and British Petroleum (BP).
Furthermore, he supplies completely different concrete and metal construction design packages for residential buildings, warehouses, and telecommunication towers.
He has participated in liquefied pure gasoline (LNG) and pure gasoline liquid (NGL) tasks with worldwide engineering companies. Presently, Dr. El-Reedy is chargeable for reliability, inspection, and upkeep methods for onshore concrete constructions and offshore metal construction platforms.
He has carried out these duties for a whole lot of constructions within the Gulf of Suez within the Purple Sea. Dr. El-Reedy has consulted with and skilled executives at many organizations,
together with the Arabian American Oil Firm, BP, Apachi, Abu Dhabi Marine Working Firm (ADMA), the Abu Dhabi Nationwide Oil Firm, King Saudi’s Inside Ministry, Qatar Telecom,
the Egyptian Common Petroleum Company, Saudi Arabia Primary Industries Company (SABIC), the Kuwait Petroleum Company, Qatar Petrochemical Firm (QAPCO), Petroleum Improvement Oman (PDO), and PETRONAS Malaysian oil firm.
He has taught technical programs on restore and upkeep of strengthened concrete constructions and metal constructions worldwide, particularly within the Center and Far East. Dr. El-Reedy has written quite a few publications and offered many papers at native and worldwide conferences sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Concrete Institute, the American Society for Testing and Supplies, and the American Petroleum Institute.
He has printed many analysis papers in worldwide technical journals and has authored eight books on complete high quality administration, high quality management and high quality assurance, financial administration for engineering tasks, and restore and safety of strengthened concrete constructions, superior concrete supplies, onshore construction design in petroleum amenities, and concrete construction reliability.
He obtained his bachelor’s diploma from Cairo College in 1990, his grasp’s diploma in 1995, and his PhD from Cairo College in 2000.
