Historically, there are so many devastating buildings, bridges, and other structural elements that collapse are related to various causes, such as corrosion, unpredicted loads, or poor quality control of construction materials. Usually, the first approach to mitigate buildings or any other construction failure includes proper characterization and testing of building/construction materials. There are a variety of tests to evaluate construction materials' properties. For example, destructive and non-destructive testing are important resources for assessing construction materials' quality, integrity, and performance. Engineers analyze the properties of these materials during the design process of any new construction, using construction material testing equipment.

The construction engineering industry is a leader in new technologies and research focused on construction materials. This webinar aims to discuss the different types of tests and standards that can support Engineers, Architects, and Construction professionals seeking up-to-date information to evaluate the condition of the concrete in deep foundations, bridges, buildings, pavements, dams, and other concrete construction.
According to Infinity Business Insights report, in the midst of the COVID-19 emergency, the worldwide market for Construction Material Testing at USD 2.4 Billion in the year 2022, is projected to arrive at a reexamined size of USD 3.4 Billion by 2028.

Dr. Ana Evangelista has been investigating different methods and techniques used to evaluate construction materials' properties.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • Continuous growth in the infrastructure sector is significantly driving the global construction material testing market.
  • Major Applications of Construction Materials Testing covering Destructive and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT).
  • Significant urbanization in developing countries such as India, Brazil, Mexico, China, and others is creating a huge demand for construction material testing knowledge.

Presenter: Dr. Ana Evangelista, EIT Lecturer and Course Coordinator

Dr. Ana Evangelista is a Civil Engineer with 20 years of work experience as an academic. She started her career coordinating and teaching units at the School of Civil Engineering at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). Additionally, she managed the Construction Materials Laboratory, providing external consultancy to the Construction Engineering sector. From 2016 to 2019 she worked as a visiting research fellow in the area of recycled concrete at Western Sydney University / School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics and she has been publishing research outcomes in international conferences and high-ranking journals. PhD research was mostly concentrated on non-destructive tests to evaluate concrete structures.

Currently, she is a Course Coordinator/Lecturer - Civil Engineering at the Engineering Institute of Technology, working collaboratively with academics and staff, from VET to Doctor of Engineering. Also, she is a member of the Academic Board and coordinator of the Work Integrated Learning program.

PhD in Civil Engineering (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro); MSc Civil Engineering; Cert IV in TAE; MIEAust.
