Introduction

This GLOMACS Advanced Materials & Technology in Concrete Industry training course will acquaint with 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 the rehabilitation of existing structures. It 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. To enhance the properties of concrete, recent advances in material science present 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 the benefit or at least be ineffective if not properly used.

The 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 GLOMACS training course will highlight:

  • Advanced techniques 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 techniques for concrete repair
  • Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) in concrete structure repair and strengthening
  • Corrosion protection up to date ways

Objectives

By the end of this GLOMACS training course, the participants will be able to:

  • Familiarise with new project management approach for brownfield project
  • Describe with new design methods and differentiates between codes and standard
  • Explain with new materials in the concrete industry
  • Familiarise with advanced method s of construction
  • Familiarise with High-Performance Concrete (HPC), High Strength Concrete (HSC), and Self – Consolidating Concrete (SCC)
  • Familiarise with all up to date materials and method of repair
  • Capable of designing and executing CFRP for concrete strengthening

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Advanced Materials & Technology in Concrete Industry training course will utilise 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.
