Course Description

The course enables delegates already familiar with what concrete is, to develop skills in the effective specification, production and end-users of concrete. The course also covers basics as well as advanced concepts up-to-date technology and techniques to the reinforced concrete structure without shutting down the plant. The advanced inspection methods for fresh and hardened concrete will be discussed and how to implement a maintenance plan for all the concrete structure.

The integrity management system procedure will be illustrated taking into consideration the major factors in design, construction and repair to maintain the concrete structure economically in all its lifetime.

The objective of this course is to introduce the causes of damaged R.C. structures. Factors affecting corrosion of concrete and reinforcing steel will be explained. Repairing materials and techniques will be discussed.
