This course is designed to expand your knowledge. in this course you will learn almost everything about concrete. Concrete is the most used material in construction worldwide. We can find material almost in everything around us. Therefore, we need to understand the properties and behavior of this material and what the reason behind using it intensively in construction. In this course, we will study the different ingredients of concrete. Also, I will explain the admixture and how various admixtures can alter concrete properties. Recently the using of pozzolans increased sharply, adding of pozzolans to the concrete mix will enhance concrete properties. We will discuss the different type of pozzolans and their effects on concrete. Also, in this course, you gain knowledge regarding SCC and fiber reinforced concrete.
Concrete cant survives without being reinforced with concrete. Here I will explain the reason behind reinforcing concrete and the grades and types of rebar. Also, we will discuss cracks in concrete and the prevention and repairing methods. The prestressing of concrete is relatively new. Here we will discuss the concept of concrete prestressing, the different between post-tensioning and pretention and the benefits of concrete prestressing.
Who this course is for:
- For all who want to learn something new.
My name is Mohammad Hamdan, and I am a Civil Engineer with extensive professional background and experience in the field of construction. I have 10+ years of experience in the construction field.
During my professional career, my emphasis has been placed on structural projects, mainly bridges and roads. Reading and practicing the design of structures is my passion.i was lucky to be a part of a big team that executed major highway interchanges.
