Work Task: Engineering Report 2
One of the enduring challenges with the Sydney Harbour Bridge is corrosion. Painting is a viable solution, but it is not terribly good in places where water can pool. Assess a variety of corrosion protection techniques for areas of the bridge that are liable to suffer from long-term pooling water on the steel structure. Make a recommendation as to which method is most suitable.
