Repair and Strengthening Reinforced Concrete Structure
What you'll learn
- The student will learn the way todo assessment and evaluating the existing structure
- Know about corrosion of steel in concrete in more detail and how to decided the ways of protection
- Inspection tools and to learn how to use visual inspection
- The methods of repair and strengthening concrete structure
- Repair concrete structure by using steel sections with example
- How to implement the CFRP repair method
- How to issue an assessment report
- The attendees have a minimum knowledge about concrete structure
This course will cover the ways of assessment the concrete structure. The ways and techniques of collecting the data and what the data you need to do the evaluation. You will have a check list to facilitate collecting data about the structures. The corrosion phenmonia and how to diagnosis the reasons of cracks will be presented. The concrete visual inspection and non destructive tests and the corrosion of steel bars test are discussed in detail from practical point of view. All these methods of inspection and detailed are using worldwide and match with the ACI, BS and european code. The repair and strengtehening for different concrete members like above skeleton from slab, beam and colum with different modes of failure will be discussed. In this course the other methods of repair and strengthening such as the repair method by using steel sections will be presented by a real example and practical methods. The adavnced repair method by using FRP which is very essential in some structures and need some special calculation and application will be illustrated in this course. To be a comprehensive course and more useful at the end of the course the attendees will receive FREE three ebooks to cover this course subjects.
At the end of the course the partcipant will learn how to evaluate the conceret structure and how to define the repair methods.

Mohamed A. El-Reedy's background is in structural engineering. His main area of research is the reliability of concrete and steel structures. He has provided consulting to different engineering companies and oil and gas industries in Egypt and to international companies such as the International Egyptian Oil Company (IEOC) and British Petroleum (BP). Moreover, he provides different concrete and steel structure design packages for residential buildings, warehouses, and telecommunication towers and electrical projects with WorleyParsons Egypt. He has participated in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Natural Gas Liquid (NGL) projects with international engineering firms.Currently, Dr. El-Reedy is responsible for reliability, inspection, and maintenance strategy for onshore concrete structures and offshore steel structure platforms. He has performed these tasks for hundreds of structures in the Gulf of Suez in the Red Sea.
Dr. El-Reedy has consulted with and trained executives at many organizations, including the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO), bp, Apachi, Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA), the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, and King Saudi's Interior ministry, Qatar Telecom, the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation, Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation, the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, and Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO). He has taught technical courses about repair and maintenance for reinforced concrete structures and the advanced materials in concrete industry worldwide, especially in the Middle East.
Dr. El-Reedy has written numerous publications and has presented many papers at local and international conferences sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the American Concrete Institute, the American Society for Testing and Materials, and the American Petroleum Institute. He has published many research papers in international technical journals and has authored many books published worldwide about offshore structures, advanced materials in concrete construction and corrosion of reinforced concrete structure, Construction management and design of industrial concrete and steel structures and Project management for industrial projects. He received his bachelor's degree from Cairo University in 1990, his master's degree in 1995, and his Ph.D from Cairo University in 2000.
