Newcastle – Concrete Repair and Protection Course
NEWCASTLE ITS YOUR TURN.
ACRA’s One Day Course in Concrete Repair offers the most comprehensive training yet available in a single day.
The new course is the best independent information available to date for engineers starting out in the specialist area of concrete repair, contractors’ supervisors and foremen, as well as those who just want some basic but detailed knowledge.
Asset managers, port and road authorities, councils and ACRA members should consider training their key staff by sending them to a session run around the country.
The course covers the following key topics:
Causes of Concrete Deterioration
Remedial and Protective Systems
How to Do a Repair Properly
The course stresses the importance of thorough diagnosis, covering the basics of concrete and its deterioration, followed by site investigation techniques and how to select an appropriate remedial or protective system.
A practical understanding of how repairs should be undertaken is discussed in the last two topics of the day – “Repair Specification”, which covers materials and workmanship; and “How to Do a Repair Properly” which presents a step-by-step guide to undertaking a repair and some common problems with workmanship.
