and

Stuart Mundth

Project Manager, Corrosion Engineer

Siva Corrosion Services


Receive (1.0) PDH

12Noon - 1PM EST

WEBINAR PLATFORM: Zoom

Presentation Topic:

Learn about the controlling factors in corrosion of steel reinforcement in concrete, including rebar cover, chloride exposure, rebar material, and concrete mix design. You will be introduced to the European model "fib 34" for concrete service life design, development of a corrosion protection plan, and the process of chloride migration testing of concrete mixes.

Speaker Biography:

Ali Shariati

Ali Shariati is a structural engineer with expertise in Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE). Vibration based SHM using videos was the focus of his PhD dissertation. He is capable of working in a variety of areas, including service life analysis, nondestructive testing, corrosion evaluations, failure analysis, and corrosion control approaches such as cathodic protection, design of electrical systems for corrosion control, etc. He has managed corrosion inspections of bridges throughout the United States. He is also experienced in data processing using different statistical/machine learning algorithms to extract information from processed data that leads to sound engineering decisions.

Stuart Mundh

Mr. Mundth graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is an expert in conducting non-destructive tests, including Ground Penetrating Radar, Infrared Thermography, Impact-Echo, and Ultrasonic Flaw Detection. He is capable of working in a variety of areas, including corrosion evaluations, failure analysis, and corrosion control approaches such as cathodic protection, design of electrical systems for corrosion control, etc. He has managed corrosion inspections of many bridges throughout the United States. He has extensive experience in testing, troubleshooting, and fixing electrical systems as it relates to ICCP and GCP. He is also experienced in data acquisition and signal processing, with an ability to extract information from processed data that leads to sound engineering decisions. An example of this decision type includes utilizing in-situ and non-destructive testing to decide the best options for corrosion mitigation repair and rehabilitation.
