Assessment, Evaluation and Repair of Reinforced Concrete Structure

Introduction

This Assessment, Evaluation, and Repair of Reinforced Concrete Structure training course will present the methods of inspection and evaluation of buildings. It will diagnose the reason for concrete deterioration or the corrosion of the steel bars to develop a preventive maintenance program. The causes of structural deterioration will be discussed deeply and concentrate on the reason for corrosion and new protection methods to the steel bars. The repair of the reinforced concrete structures recently developed by using new materials will be discussed theoretically and practically, its advantages and disadvantages, and how to use the suitable method.

The assessment of the reinforced concrete structure is now a main challenge to the civil engineer. The repair of reinforced concrete structures has developed in recent years due to the new technology of the materials and the techniques of maintenance and repair. The preventive maintenance strategy, with its target and plan in the scope of the economic perspective, shall be clarified. Moreover, computer programs can be used to manage maintenance. Risk-based inspection techniques will be presented in the scope of the likelihood of building failure, consequences of failure, and the building risk matrix.

This training course will highlight:

  • Technologies of evaluating both of structures composed of concrete or steel
  • The value of diagnoses and tests used for inspecting constructions
  • Understanding how the inspection as well tests are applicable for different areas of constructions
  • Different methods based on theories as well as practice for inspection
  • The way to use advanced techniques by some integrated method in the work
