Advanced Concrete Technology
Who should attend?
The course will be of particular interest to engineers employed in the field of Construction and Civil Engineering This training course is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit: Engineers, architects, technologists and field inspectors.
5 Days
Programme Overview
This seminar consists of several workshops that provide state-of-the-art knowledge on durable and sustainable concrete, including mineral additions and chemical admixtures that enhance the workability, strength, and durability of concrete. The workshops will also enhance the decision-making process regarding various concrete products, construction procedures, and performance test methods.
This course will provide engineers, architects, technologists and field inspectors with a comprehensive understanding of modern concrete technology, covering all aspects from mixture design, to transporting, handling, to curing to field control tests and on-site performance.
This training course will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. This includes formal lectures and interactive worked examples included in several workshops. Presented also will be several illustrative and instructive videos. The emphasis in the seminar will be on the explanation of all technical points and providing answers to problems that are encountered in everyday industrial practice related to operation and maintenance, as well as repair and alterations of industrial heating equipment
