Structural Analysis and Design For Concrete Buildings

Introduction:

Concrete is everywhere! It is used in pavements, building structures, foundations, motorways/roads, overpasses, parking structures, brick/block walls and bases for gates, fences, poles, and many more. Concrete is used more than any other man-made material on the planet. It has been said that instead of naming our era the Nuclear Age, it Should be called the Concrete Age, as almost all of our modern lifestyles and constructions Depend on this material.

This five-day course on structural analysis and design for concrete buildings covers concrete manufacturing, designing, and maintaining. It includes details about ingredients and their quality, quantity, and effect on the final product of concrete. Concrete designing, its Specifications, standards, and codes, and the concrete mix design are discussed in detail, along with various procedures and precautions for field manufacturing of concrete.

The defects, investigations, remedial measures and repairs are covered in detail, and modern concepts like ready mix concrete, precast and prestressed concrete and their applications are also reviewed. The basics, from concrete ingredients to repair and maintenance, are covered throughout the training on structural analysis and design for concrete buildings, which would be very useful to every technician who works with concrete.
