Design And Maintenance Concrete Structure In Petrochemical Plants

Course Code: EM60

Course Objective

  • This course enables delegates already familiar with what concrete is, to develop skills in effective specification, production and end users of concrete.
  • The course covers basics as well as advanced concepts up-to-date technology.
  • The course will illustrate up to date modern technique to repair the reinforced concrete structure without shut down the plant.
  • The advanced inspection methods for fresh and hardened concrete will be discussed and how to implement maintenance plan for all the concrete structure.
  • The integrity management system procedure will be illustrated taking into consideration the major factors in design, construction and repair to maintain the concrete structure economically in all its lifetime.


Target Audience

  • Construction supervisors
  • Civil engineers
  • Inspectors
