This is a two days training course in best practice in control and use of concrete.

Synopsis

More concrete is produced and used than any other construction material. It is therefore an economic necessity for concrete to be reliable and durable. Made from such ordinary materials, the technology of cement and concrete is incongruously complex, possessing an ability to produce completed buildings and structures over a wide range of quality and integrity. This two-day course provides an appreciation of the highest principles of concrete technology and best construction practices that are essential for the achievement of successful concrete projects.

Speaker Profile

Both tutors are corporate members of the Institute of Concrete Technology, having acquired many years depth of experience in materials technology, concrete production, construction management, training and education.

Tony Binns has had a long career specialising in the technology, construction and production of concrete. Many years were spent working in the production and quality control of aggregates and ready-mixed concrete, followed by service in the Training Directorate of the Cement & Concrete Association in the UK, Then as senior scientific engineer for an international construction company. He has been engaged in worldwide projects including offshore oil installations and is now in private practice as a consultant, providing educational and technical support to organisations with concrete orientated interests.

This is a one day training course covering the principles of quality management for ready-mix concrete production.

Synopsis
High Performance Concrete offers many opportunities to cast bespoke structures, however; at the point of casting, key physical and durability properties generally remain unknown. Problems are often only discovered on completion of testing of the hardened concrete perhaps twenty days later. This one day course commences with an overview of the problem and existing quality assurance schemes for the control of ready-mixed concrete. The potential fore reducing this risk of non-conforming concrete and the key requirements and controls necessary for products certification are then covered. Finally a workshop will allow delegates to improve their knowledge and understanding through a series of tutorial and casestudies.

Half-Day Seminar on SPECIFYING CONCRETE TO EN 206 AND BS 8500 by Professor Ravindra K Dhir, Professor, Division of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, University of Dundee

Seminar Synopsis:
Specifying concrete for construction is one of the most important roles of the design engineer. This can effect the performance of structures, repair/maintenance strategies that may be required, Realisation of the intended life span, and hence the cost and the quality of the built environment. Thus, specifications should be carefully developed, and the standards for concrete properly understood and correctly applied. This ½ day seminar is planned to promote good concrete practice and assist engineers in creating a greater appreciation of specifying concrete and the current standards dealing with it. The seminar will consist of four lectures (45 minutes each) as noted below.

Seminar Programme:
8.30 am : Registration
9.00am – 10.15 am : Understanding of Standards – with exercises on selecting
(i) exposure classes
(ii) limiting parameters
10.15am – 10.45 am : Coffee Break
10.45 am-12.00 pm : Process of Specifying Concrete – with exercises on requirements
(i) determining concrete requirements
(ii) specifying concrete
12.00pm-2.30pm:Q &A
12.30 pm : Lunch
