Advanced Concrete Technology for Durable and Sustainable Civil Infrastructure

<< Back to Course Catalogue

After participating to this seminar, you will be able to do the following:

  • Apply modern concrete technology in concrete projects
  • Develop performance specifications for concrete projects
  • Create more durable and sustainable concrete mix designs
  • Select suitable test methods to evaluate concrete performance
  • Interpret quality control data results for fresh and hardened concrete


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 seminar consists of several workshops which 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 your decision-making process regarding various concrete products, construction procedures and performance test methods.

Course Outline:

  • Cement chemistry, hydration & microstructure
  • Supplementary cementitious materials
  • Concrete chemical admixtures
  • Workability of fresh concrete
  • Concrete mixture design
  • Concrete test methods & quality control
  • Modern concretes: HPC, SCC, FRC, UHPC, mass concrete and thermal stress, pervious concrete & shotcrete
  • Service life prediction
  • Concrete construction sustainability
