E027 Engineering Advance Materials For Construction, Repair And Maintenance Of Reinforced Concrete Structures 2 Days

BEM Approved 16 CPD Hours (Ref No: IEM09/PP/031/S) Normal Price RM 1500.00
(If 2 or more RM 1200.00 per person Only)
• 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 or in repairing new or existing structures. These materials could cause more harm than benefit or at least be ineffective if not properly used.
• This two-days 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 course will also cover test methods and technical specifications for such materials as well as troubleshooting for their most common problems.
• Participant will know the necessary information about the different advanced concrete materials, what test should be performed and how to interpret their results, what to look for in specifications and troubleshooting of material related problems.
