Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The course aims at describing the main problems of degradation of cementitious and ceramic materials as a function of the working environment. The students will be able to make a durability assessment, understanding the degradation mechanisms expected, evaluating the material service life and selecting suitable preventative/repair techniques both in the design phase, and in real structures already subject to degradation. An insight into advanced ceramic and special glass materials industrial applications will be given, to better understand critical aspects determining materials durability. The students will understand how to increase ceramic materials toughness and extend their service life in high temperature applications by a correct material selection in the given working environment.


Risultati di apprendimento attesi

Lectures, numerical exercises and practical examples will allow the student to:

- define, for each environment, the possible risks of concrete degradation

- understand the mechanisms of rebars corrosion in concrete

- estimate the service life of a concrete structure in a given environment

- understand the causes of degradation and select a proper repair technique for already existing structures

- indicate the main industrial applications of advanced ceramic materials, and correlate them to the specifically relevant materials properties

- learn the toughening mechanisms of advanced ceramics

- understand the mechanisms of ceramics degradation in high temperature applications

- discuss and select a proper advanced ceramic for a specific application

- discuss special glass characteristics for advanced applications (solar control, optical fibers)


Argomenti trattati

The course is taught in the second emi-semester and it deals with the following topics.

Concrete degradation. Chemical and physical degradation of concrete based on transport mechanisms inside the material. Concrete degradation: physical degradation; attack by acids, sulfates, water; alkali-silica reaction; attack by seawater. Rebars corrosion mechanisms in reinforced concrete: initiation and propagation; main consequences; carbonation-induced corrosion; chloride-induced corrosion. Effect of relative humidity, presence of salts. Evaluation of concrete service life by a deterministic approach (the probabilistic approach will be briefly addressed as well). Preventative techniques for concrete degradation: surface treatments, inhibitors, corrosion-resistant rebars. Real structure inspection, monitoring and repair.

Advanced ceramics. Brief description of advanced ceramics production techniques. Applications of advanced ceramics (alumina, zirconia, mullite, titanium dioxide, nitrides and carbides) described with reference to the properties required in each specific application field. Toughness of ceramics: methods for improving the material toughness through the production of ceramic matrix composites.

High temperature degradation of advanced ceramics. Mechanisms of high temperature degradation of both refractory and structural advanced ceramics. Role of environment temperature and composition. Strategies to extend service life.

Glass. Composition and properties of special glass for solar control and other applications in the built environment: photochromic, electrochromic, thermochromic, liquid crystal glass. Production and working principles of optical fibers. Glass degradation.

NOTE ON BOOKS SUGGESTED: Given the number of different topics presented, the whole program cannot be covered with one single textbook: for this reason, several books are suggested, each of them covering part of the program. For topics related to concrete, Bertolini (in Italian) and Collepardi (in English) are indicated as alternatives the student can choose among. Moreover, students will be provided with slides of all lectures, and notes for selected topics.


Prerequisiti

Basic knowledge of principles of concrete technology and ceramic materials properties.


Modalità di valutazione

The evaluation will be carried out by a written exam. 

An intermediate written exam will be scheduled at the end of the semester, on a date prior to the first official exam day. It consists of two open questions and two numerical exercises.

Aim of the written exam is to verify the student understanding of the corrosion and degradation issues of concrete and ceramics in real working conditions and to verify if the student is able to apply such knowledge to perform a material selection based on the application requirements and to make a proper assessment, evaluating the residual service life or applying repair techniques to restore safe working conditions.

Only if already sufficient (>18/30), the student can improve the final score with an oral exam (optional).The oral exam is meant to assess the capability of the student to apply the theoretical and practical concepts learned to real cases of evaluation of possible degradation mechanisms and prevention or repair strategies. With the oral, a maximum increase of 3 points can be obtained. If the oral is not satisfactory, the score can be reduced.

Exams during the official dates are organised in the same way.
