Melito A. Baccay
Field of award: Civil Engineering
Year awarded: 2009
Division: Engineering Sciences
In recognition of his pioneering and outstanding works in the development of non-destructive electrochemical evaluation techniques for the assessment of the instantaneous corrosion rate of steel in existing reinforced concrete structures. His two-dimensional electrochemical model for the measurement and monitoring of steel corrosion in existing structure has been proven to be easy and practical to use. His current works are original and innovative to better understand the nature and mechanism of steel corrosion in existing reinforced concrete structure.
