Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

This training course presents the methods of inspection and evaluation of buildings and diagnosis and reason of concrete deterioration or the corrosion of the steel bars to develop preventive maintenance program. The causes of structure deterioration will be discussed and topics will concentrate on the reasons of corrosion and new protection methods to the steel bars.

The training course illustrates the preventive maintenance strategy, its target and plan in scope of economic point of view in this course and the background of the new software used in the area of maintenance management system.  Risk based inspection techniques will be presented in scope of likelihood of building failure, consequences of failure and the building risk matrix.

This PetroKnowledge course will also introduce the ways of repair for different concrete structure elements and presents the precaution, materials and other resources needed for each type of repair. The design of CFRP for strengthening will be presented and the way of using steel sections in repair. The rehabilitation and maintenance strategies will be discussed in scope of recent technique of risk based inspection and structure reliability.

This training course will feature:

  • The importance of inspection and testing activity
  • Applying the inspection and testing in many construction areas
  • Focusing on practical and theoretical ways of inspection
  • How to integrate new inspection technique into the work domain
