Collaboration Partners

JFE Steel Corporation

A bilateral agreement between JFe and BUET under the supervision of Prof. Amin is facilitating the implementation of a five year long Atmospheric Exposure Test at different locations of Bangladesh.

The objectives are as follows:

  • To collect first hand data for airborne salt at different geographical locations of the country.

  • To expose different grades of steel specimens including weathering steels to the actual environmental conditions and thereby to make direct comparisons between different grades of steel.

  • Attempts are being made to make a comparative assessment of life cycle costs for different grades of ordinary steel and weathering steels at different geographical and climatological locations of Bangladesh.

Expected outcomes

After successful completion of this study, the results and conclusions will be presented in seminar and published in local and international journal/proceedings to form a basis for forming the future design approach in the country with this promising material. The outcome of the study will also be valuable to rationalize the existing corrosion protection approaches in bridges and exposed structural members made of ordinary steel. The data gathered from the study will also be useful for developing corrosion models across the country for different climatic conditions and its expected change over the time.
