Concrete durability is an all-time crucial concern of Engineers. Non-performing anti-corrosion / waterproofing products used in structures can shorten the overall life span of those structures by far and no Engineer would like to experience it. This talk attempts to go back to the basic to see in what way concrete is under attack especially when it is exposed to aggressive environments such as marine or sewage environments. The reasons why many anti-corrosion / waterproofing products available in the Market fail to protect concrete and the solution shall be explored in this talk as well. The objective of the talk is also to give a better understanding for our young engineers and practicing engineers to get some insight on the above topic.
