Lucideon, the international materials development and commercialisation organisation, has announced that next month it will hold a free webinar titled ‘An Introduction to Investigating Failure Analysis of Onsite Hardened Concrete’.
Hardened concrete can suffer various failures, from low compressive strength, surface scaling and spalling, through to cracking, exposure of reinforcement and collapse. These failures can be the result of various things, such as environmental conditions, chemical exposure, and design and/or construction faults.
Visual inspections and testing can be used to understand failure mechanisms. Analysing failures enables repair methods to be chosen, establishes the consequences, and apportions responsibility.
The webinar will cover the initial visual examination; non-destructive testing; physical sampling and sampling techniques; destructive testing (laboratory analysis and techniques); and interpreting reports.
Lucideon provides testing and consultancy services throughout the concrete production process, from materials selection/characterization, in-situ use and failures, through to demolition and recycling at the end of its life. Services for concrete include raw material evaluations, failure analysis, conformance testing and CE marking, admixtures testing, concrete testing and condition monitoring.
The webinar will take place on Thursday 25th October 2018 at 3pm. You can register to attend the free webinar here.
