Bernhard Elsener, a materials scientist and PhD in corrosion, is Professor for Materials Science at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Cagliari (Italy) and a lecturer at ETH Zurich. He is an internationally well-known expert on the durability of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. His extensive research work and numerous publications focus on non-destructive methods to detect and quantify corrosion, the use of new electrically isolated post-tensioning tendons and electrochemical restoration techniques.
Pietro Pedeferri, a graduate in chemical engineering and former professor of Electrochemistry at University of Bari, has been professor of Corrosion and protection of materials at the Technical Univer sity of Milan since 1983. Over the last 15 Years his work has been mainly concerned with the corrosion of steel in concrete, and he has published more then 300 papers and a dozen books in the field of corrosion and materials technology.
Rob B. Polder, PhD in Chemistry, is a materials scientist at TNO Building and Construction Research, an independent research and consultancy organization. He is the Chairman of European Action COST 534 "New materials and systems for prestressed concrete structures" and a member of several national and international research committees on durability of concrete. The main focus of his work is on the corrosion of steel in concrete, from the prediction and detection to prevention and correction, including electrochemical methods.
