Overview

Credit: 2 PDH

Length: 24 pages

Knowing the underlying causes of concrete deficiencies is essential to performing meaningful evaluations of concrete and making proper selection of the method or technique used to successfully repair concrete. Of course, one must differentiate the symptoms of a deficiency from the actual cause of the deficiency, and it is imperative that causes, not symptoms, be addressed in repairs. In most cases, there will be more than one cause or mechanism contributing to the damage detected in the concrete, making concrete deterioration an extremely complex subject.

This course is most relevant to engineers wishing to attain knowledge on the most common causes of problems in concrete. For each cause discussed, you will learn the various mechanisms acting upon the concrete, the related symptoms observable during a visual inspection of the concrete, and methods or techniques to prevent further damage.
