Why Choose this Training Course?

The renovation of the reinforced concrete structures has become common in recent years due to the development in technologies, materials and the techniques for maintenance and repair. This training course will present methods for inspection and evaluation of buildings and diagnose the reason of concrete deterioration or the corrosion of the steel bars, to develop preventive maintenance program.

The causes of structure deterioration will be discussed concentrating on the reason of corrosion and new protection methods to the steel bars. All the repair and renovation methods will be covered theoretically and practically and obviously discussed its advantages and disadvantages and how to use the suitable method. The case study explains practically who can we diagnosis the reason of deterioration and take the decision of repair and choose between different alternatives. CFRP will be illustrated for renovation and strengthening the structure.

This training course will feature:

  • The new methods of structure diagnosis
  • The new methods for structure renovation
  • The materials that will be used in concrete structure repair
  • Protection of the structure during the renovation

What are the Goals?

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand modern and effective procedures for renovation of the building
  • Know the structure defects and cracks and diagnosis the reason for deterioration
  • Diagnose the problem and provide a repair solution
  • Familiarise with up-to-date renovation methods for concrete and steel structures

Who is this Training Course for?

This training course is designed for people in the construction industry who are involved in building maintenance and provide execution plan for maintenance and repair for buildings.

The training course will also benefit those who are involved in preparing maintenance document package, diagnose the reasons of failure, and also the engineers who define and choose the methods of repair.

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This  PetroKnowledge training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The daily workshops will be highly interactive and participative. Videos and photos will be used for illustration.
