Chicago, IL 60616


Prof. Paul Anderson, Prof. Jamshid Mohammadi , and Prof. Brent Stephens of the Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering department will be hosting a seminar featuring Keith Eberhardt, Vice President and Ian Wienholt, Director of Business Development, both, at Structural Preservation Systems, LLC. The topic of the seminar will be Embedded Metal Corrosion: Cause and Effect. 


The specifics of reinforcing steel corrosion is discussed with the goal of increasing awareness and understanding of how to evaluate the effects and how to determine the most appropriate cathodic protection method(s).

Learning Objectives:

  • Environmental conditions required for corrosion to initiate and propagate
  • Selection of appropriate counter-measures for remediation
  • Operating principles of cathodic protection and to learn about the available long-term solutions for corrosion control
