Event Overview: 

If Percival Faraday (P F) Thompson is considered the grandfather of corrosion science and engineering in Australia then Professor Brian Cherry of Monash University can be considered the father. Brian has not just educated in the tertiary space many of the leading corrosion science and engineering practitioners but he has also educated others in the profession at conferences, seminars and symposia. It is not just his educating abilities that we should be thankful for but also his research and investigative works in various fields of corrosion science and engineering.

One of the fields that Brian has educated, researched and investigated over many decades is “Reinforced Concrete Corrosion, Protection, Repair & Durability”. To that end the Australasian Corrosion Association (ACA) is holding an International Symposium to highlight the achievements of Brian in the areas of:- reinforcement corrosion in concrete; condition assessment; modelling and deterioration prediction; concrete repair and protection; cathodic protection; and, concrete durability options.

11 International Speakers coming to Australia – Technical Program available shortly

High calibre international and Australian speakers will present. Technical papers of high quality and of substantive length will form a hard-copy book for delegates (and also as an after sales publication for the ACA).  A panel discussion and open forum will be held at the end of each day. The technical papers will be high quality and of substantive length so as to form a hard-copy book for delegates (and also as an after sales publication for the ACA). A trade exhibition, networking cocktail functions and a dinner will also form part of the 2 day symposium making it a most meaningful event that is not to be missed.
