Introduction

This GLOMACS five-day Civil & Construction Engineering training seminar will introduce newly developed concrete materials as well as the repair materials utilized in most repair works in concrete structures either for those needed during construction or for rehabilitation of existing structures. The training seminar will also cover test methods and technical specifications for such materials as well as troubleshooting for their most common problems.

Concrete is used throughout the world for a wide range of applications. In order to improve the properties of concrete, recent advances in material science introduce new materials or admixtures to be added to or replace conventional concrete materials. Such materials could be used in new concrete construction and/or in repairing new or existing structures. These materials could cause more harm than benefit or at least be ineffective if not properly used .

At the end of this training seminar, participants will know the necessary information about the different advanced concrete materials, what tests should be performed and how to interpret their results, what to look for in specifications and define the advantage and disadvantages for each new material.

This training seminar will feature:

  • Advanced technique in codes and standard
  • Advanced materials in concrete construction
  • New materials to increase concrete durability
  • Advanced construction method to have a sustainable structure
  • Advanced materials and technique for concrete repair
  • CFRP in concrete structure repair and strengthening
  • Corrosion protection up to date ways

Objectives

At the end of this training course, participants will:

  • Be familiar with new project management approach for brown field project
  • Be familiar with new design methods and differentiates between codes and standard
  • Be familiar with new materials in concrete industry
  • Be familiar with advanced method s of construction
  • Be familiar with HPC, HSC and SCC
  • Be familiar with all up to date materials and method of repair
  • Be capable to design and execute CFRP for concrete strengthening

Training Methodology

This Civil & Construction Engineering training seminar will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The daily workshops will be highly interactive and participative. Videos and photos will be used for illustration.
