Advanced concrete technology
Any organization’s concrete technology services involves a range of mixture design through transportation, handling, curing, field control tests, and on-site performance.
Premature deterioration of civil infrastructure has created a colossal backlog of ageing concrete structures. Professionals need to design structures that can exceed their service life even in harsh environments and with minimum maintenance and repair. This, however, requires a solid understanding of concrete technology and the interaction between structures and their environment.
This course is designed to disseminate the knowledge on recent advances in science and technology of concrete. It is anticipated that engineers, architects, technologists and field inspectors will gain a thorough understanding of modern concrete technology in this course, which will cover everything from mixture design through transportation, handling, curing, field control tests, and on-site performance.
This course delves into the fundamentals of concrete materials science in order to have a better knowledge of how concrete behaves. The structure and qualities of concrete-making materials are covered in addition to the study of selected themes regarding fresh and hardened concrete behavior is followed by mixture proportioning of high performance concrete and a research of selected topics regarding fresh and hardened concrete behavior.
