Access for 6 month(s) after purchase.



This webinar will cover the basics of concrete, its composition, properties, and deterioration mechanisms. The steps for concrete evaluation, surface preparation, and repairs will be discussed including the types of repair materials and related concepts from mix design and field testing to the durability of in-place concrete. Participants will explore sustaining concrete activities including the basics of concrete maintenance such as waterproofing and corrosion protection that can enhance their concrete construction business and reputation for long-term successful projects. Key concepts critical to avoiding liability in the future, including an overview of mechanisms that cause failure and approaches for mitigation, will be addressed. Finally, the compromises involved in concrete repair will be discussed. Questions and comments will be encouraged. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the components of Concrete and what makes concrete susceptible to deterioration
  2. Be able to explain the basics of the corrosion process 
  3. Demonstrate selection process for concrete repair materials and methods
  4. Compare the long-term costs of maintaining and repairing concrete structures before and after they exhibit signs of deterioration
