Designing High Performance Concrete Structures

22-03-2020 - 26-03-2020 3300 دبي

 

Course Introduction:

 

This course will introduce you to state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies for designing and specifying concrete subjected to extreme conditions.

 

 

Course Objectives:

 

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

Ø  Understand the basics of quality concrete construction

Ø  Provide design details to minimize concrete deterioration

Ø  Develop project specifications to improve concrete durability

Ø  Utilize the latest technology in concrete materials and construction methods

Ø  Reduce potential conflicts in specifications

Ø  Understand quality assurance methods for concrete

Ø  Recognize and solve potential problems with concrete construction 
 

 

Who Should Attend?

 

This course is intended for engineers who design concrete structures exposed to harsh environments such as bridges, roadways, plazas, parking structures, marine structures or any building with exposed concrete. Nearly every structure has one or more components that are potentially subjected to a harsh environment including freeze-thaw and chemical attack. Engineers must have a good understanding of these failure mechanisms to provide effective design solutions. Contractors and product suppliers will also benefit from this seminar.
