Date: 5th December 2023 | Venue: Online
The strength of concrete is primarily measured by the testing of cubes made from the fresh concrete supply. On occasion lower than expected test results may be received, casting doubt over the quality of the concrete in a structure. While many factors may disrupt construction schedules, few are more frustrating than questions concerning concrete quality. Therefore, the causes of these failures need to be identified in order for the correct course of action to be taken.
Delivered by highly experienced industry professionals, this seminar will explain the differences between cube strength and in-situ concrete strength, together with the course of action in the event of cube failure. In addition, the seminar will advise how on results should be interpreted, and the consequences to all parties of poor practices.
Who should attend
This seminar will provide crucial information for Design Engineers, Site Engineers, those in supervisory roles and all who are interested in the efficient delivery of quality concrete structures. Ready-mixed concrete producers and client representatives will also benefit from attending.
