Fundamentals of Concrete Technology
What you'll learn
- How concrete is made and it's components
- The heat of hydration
- Properties of fresh and hardened concrete
- Workability, settlement, bleeding and plastic shrinkage
By the end of this course, you will fully grasp the theory behind the production of concrete from chemical compound, all the way to quality hardened concrete.
We’re not going to worry about the design of concrete elements in this course, but instead take a deep dive into fundamental concrete properties and behaviour as the concrete sets on site.
Please Note this course covers the properties of concrete and not the design of reinforced concrete elements.
I have designed this course for engineers early in their career that are looking to take their knowledge of concrete to the next level, but don’t have the time to sift through textbooks looking for the relevant facts, or are struggling to get enough actual site time while being stuck in the office all day.
The main items we'll focus on in this course are:
The hydration process
The influence of admixtures and aggregates
Properties of fresh and hardened concrete
Workability, settlement, bleeding and plastic shrinkage
Tensile and core strength
We'll focus not only on the theory, but also real world considerations that are not often found in the text books.
This course has been specifically designed to give value to you, the student, and lifetime access means you will receive all future updates and additions free of charge.
If you are not 100% sure this course is for you, feel free to take a look around. If you are not convinced, there is a 30 day money back guarantee with no hard feelings or questions asked.
Thanks for taking the time to view this course, and I hope to see you in there!
Who this course is for:
- Structural engineers looking to increase or refresh their knowledge
I am a practising engineer in a design consultancy, with over a decade's experience in structural design who is passionate about structural engineering.
After studying at four different universities in two different countries, I have completed modules up to a masters level in steel building and concrete building design. With the educational base and hands on experience within the industry I plan on creating courses available to everyone.
I was paying almost £2000 per subject at masters level and believe this information should be affordably available to whomever is willing to take the time to learn.
