In spite of numerous efforts to eliminate cracks from concrete structures, there are still many cracked concrete structures. Some cracks are very harmful and should be repaired as soon as possible, while other cracks are almost harmless. Therefore, a good guideline on how to deal with cracks in concrete structures has long been needed. JCI first published Practical Guideline for Investigation and Repair of Concrete Structures in 1980, a second version followed in 1987, and a third version was followed in 2003. In this third version, the English edition was also published. It was presented in Singapore in a seminar in March 2005 which was overwhelmingly received. Then in 2009, a fourth version was published in Japanese in 2009. This volume, titled Practical Guideline for Investigation, Repair and Strengthening of Cracked Concrete Structures -2009“ is the English edition of this latest version. It is believed that this guideline will be of much use when cracks are detected in existing concrete structures, both in Japan and overseas. JCI-SCI is pleased to announce this seminar in which all seminar participants will be given a copy of this latest guideline.

Recycled and Secondary Aggregates:
Use in Concrete Construction


This one day Seminar, which should be of interest to all those engaged in concrete construction, such as design/specifying engineers, contractors, precast concrete
manufacturers, ready mixed concrete suppliers, recycled and secondary aggregates suppliers, demolition contractors, will deal with the fundamentals, technology and practice of the use of recycled and secondary aggregates in concrete construction and uses case studies to show what has been achieved and the challenges that lay ahead in overcoming the barriers against the use of RSA and in so doing promote sustainable concrete construction.

 

The one day Seminar will consist of 7(seven) Lectures conducted by three prominent
lecturers in this field. Don’t miss this great opportunity!

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.

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
