This course is designed to improve your understanding of cracking in concrete.

The following topics will be covered:

  • The origin and analysis of the crack shape, profile and width at different ages. This is related to the RILEM technical committee TC 287 - CCS - Early age and long-term crack width analysis in RC Structures and it is fundamental to understanding the link between cracking, durability and structural performance.
  • How we can control cracks at nano, micro and macro-scale
  • Provide guidance on prevention and repair of cracks.
  • Finally, the concept of self-healing cracks and an update of the current state of this technology.

Who should attend?
This course is suitable for you if you are:

  • A civil, structural, materials engineer involved in design, construction and
    management concrete infrastructure
  • An academic or researcher interested in the latest challenges on durability
    and structural performance of concrete assets.
  • A service engineer or scientist who would value a deeper understanding of
    cracking in concretes and how the theory can be applied to develop effective control strategies.
