Advanced Concrete Technology for Durable and Sustainable Civil Infrastructure

17 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • 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 the concrete performance
  • Interpret quality control data results for fresh and hardened concrete

The premature deterioration of civil infrastructure has created a colossal backlog of ageing concrete structures. Professionals must 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 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 improve your decision-making process regarding various concrete products, construction procedures and performance test methods.

Course Outline:

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