Event description

Description

There are only three certain things in the life of an engineer – death, taxes and corrosion.

While we rely heavily on ferrous alloys, principally steel, for much of the built environment, they and many other commonly used alloys are essentially unstable and want nothing more than to return to the low energy state in which they happily spent most of the last few millennia.

With around 4% of GDP going down the drain in the form of rust, there are clearly good reasons to understand the problems plus the routes to preventing such a waste.

Within 1 hour, all will be revealed.


Speaker Paul Lambert is Head of Materials and Corrosion Technology for Mott MacDonald. He has over 30 years’ experience in the investigation of structural durability and degradation and in the development of novel remedial techniques for civil and building structures. His team are internationally recognised for their work on cathodic protection design and service life prediction through numerical modelling.

Paul is Visiting Professor at the Centre for Infrastructure Management at Sheffield Hallam University where he carries out research into novel material and repair technologies and was awarded a Royal Society Industry Fellowship for his work on the electrochemical preservation of steel and iron framed heritage structures. He is author of over 150 technical papers and articles and is regularly invited to present at international conferences and symposia.
