  2. 2. Aim Of The Course: Concrete is a highly variable material and its properties can be modified to suit the individual requirements of a structure or an environment. Decisions regarding the selection of concrete component materials are frequently left to the contractor, and the re- sulting concrete properties may result in excessive shrinkage and cracking, for example, even if the concrete satisfies a rudimentary specification. Basis Of The Course Content: In a very tight curriculum, a tertiary institution is unable to give future designers or constructors of reinforced concrete structures a thorough understanding of materials science. The course will ensure a better understanding of what can be achieved with con- crete, and how it can accommodate the needs of a specific structure. Moon Consulting is POPI Complied… For Bookings please email: Harold Panasuraman (Procurement Manager) Thomas Williams (Researcher & Production Manager) Zororo Banhire (Training & Skills Development Manager) About Our Facilitator: The author and presenter of the training material is the well-known international lecturer Bruce Raath, who has Membership of Institute of Concrete Technologists (London) and Assoc. Member- ship of the Institution of Structural Engineers (London). This combination of qualifications gives a clear insight into the relationship between the behaviour of materials, and the modification of the constituent materials to produce a high quality structure on behalf of the client.
  3. 3. Subject Matter That Will Be Covered: The subject matter is a practical guide to the selection and placement of concrete materials. • Relationships between parties to a civil engineering contract • The three states of concrete with measurable properties and operations undertaken, to satisfy the needs of different types of specification • Formwork and falsework used to support and mould fresh concrete, the materials used for formwork, their advantages and disadvantages • Common defects that occur in concrete and their avoidance • Case studies workshop where special structures will be discussed and the required concrete properties identified, classified and specified Day One Time Day Two Time Registration morning tea 08:30-09:00 Registration and morning tea 08:30-09:00 Tea break & Networking 10:00-10:30 Tea break & Networking 10:00-10:30 Lucnh & Networking 13:00-14:00 Lunch & Networking 13:00-14:00 Refreshments 15:00-15:15 Refreshments 15:00-15:15 End of day one 16:30 End of Workshop 16:30 Course Agenda Who Should Attend: * Concrete technologists * Construction consultants * Construction managers * Engineers * Technicians * Batchers * Concrete designers * Client bodies that want reinforced concrete structures that will not incur huge maintenance costs in future, designers and constructors who are serious about quality in the best interests of their clients.
