Course Description

A large number of concrete structures are deteriorating, often prematurely, and need remedial measures to reinstate their safety and/or serviceability. Consequently, the need for repair and protection has grown considerably in recent years. While costs associated with repair of deteriorating concrete structures can be substantial, costs resulting from poorly designed or executed repairs may be even higher.

The technical and economic success of repair projects depends on a range of factors, including a proper condition assessment of the structure, design and execution of remedial measures, and design and implementation of maintenance strategies.

Course Objectives

  • Providing tools to assess the serviceability and the life span of concrete structures
  • Evaluating the actual capacity of the structure versus life span and life cost
  • Defining the best strategy for assessment and rehabilitation of concrete structures
  • Providing participants with a fundamental and practical understanding on condition assessment of concrete structures and concrete repair and strengthening methods

Who Should Attend?

  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Construction  professionals
