Please join Dr. Ana Evangelista, EIT Civil & Structural Engineering Course Coordinator and Lecturer, to learn more about different methods and techniques used to evaluate concrete properties.
Concrete is the most widely consumed civil construction material in terms of its versatility, strength, and durability among other benefits. As a result, concrete is used in almost every type of construction, including homes, buildings, roads, bridges, airports, and tunnels. However, over time concrete presents signs of deterioration as it exceeds its original design life. Consequently, the existing infrastructure typically degrades over time whilst it is subjected to larger loads than it was initially intended for.
Historically there have been countless buildings, bridges, and other structural elements that have collapsed due to various causes such as corrosion, unpredicted loads, or natural disasters. Usually, the first approach to mitigate structural failure includes periodic visual inspections as part of the maintenance schedule. Additionally, there are different methods to evaluate and monitor existing structures. For example, non-destructive testing, evaluation techniques and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) technologies are important resources for assessing concrete quality, integrity, and performance in situ.
The construction engineering industry is a leader in new technologies and research that is focused on structural behavior monitoring. This webinar aims to discuss the technologies that can support engineers, architects, and construction professionals seeking up-to-date information to evaluate the condition of concrete in deep foundations, bridges, buildings, pavements, dams, and other concrete construction.
Dr. Ana Evangelista has been investigating different methods and techniques used to evaluate concrete properties.
