Nanoscale Approaches for Inhibiting Corrosion: Multifunctional Nanomaterials and Processes for Infrastructure Repair and Corrosion Inhibition

This project seeks to develop technologies for new in situ nanomaterial-based repair methods that can tailor the materials to include multifunctional properties of carbon nanotubes. The proposed effort will create new materials and methods to either repair or retrofit structures located both above and underwater to inhibit corrosion The team will take advantage of the advancement in nanomaterials, in particular, carbon nanotubes and their related versatile physical and mechanical properties, to develop an onsite spray based method to develop a structural capacity enhancement and a barrier layer for corrosion resistance. The technical innovations could lead to profound impacts in advanced multifunctional strengthening and repair technology.
