Since an environmental conductive to corrosion-induced deterioration exists in natural draft hyperbolic cooling towers, understanding of the deterioration mechanisms as well as effective rehabilitation strategies are required to preserve the value of natural draft hyperbolic cooling towers. Due to the progressive nature of corrosion deterioration, the consequences and costs associated with delaying repairs can be significant. By utilizing state-of-the-art concrete repair technology augmented with high performance construction materials and protection systems, cost effective repair programs can be implemented. These repair programs can extend service life and protect the value of the high initial investment associated with the construction of hyperbolic natural draft cooling towers.
