Quality assurance in pavement construction

 

Introduction

Structural engineers are encountering many problems due to the hot climate and the other environmental conditions. Quality control in construction of the pavement construction and reinforced concrete structure is a complete function which involves management, statistics and engineering.

This training seminar case study and practical sessions will be for construction projects as most projects are time driven and need a high quality to maintain the sustainable facilities along the production filed life.

In this training seminar, the focus is on using the statistics as a tool to control all the activities of the construction projects, especially the concrete product. The quality control of the the pavement construction is illustrated in scope of the different codes and specifications. This training seminar will deliver a state-of-art methodology to control the concrete quality, introduces ways to control the specification recommendations in detail

This training seminar will feature:

    Different codes and standards for Quality Control

    Quality control test (video presentation)

    Effects of quality in project sustainability

    Main skills and required knowledge for QC On Site

    QC procedure for pavement construction and concrete in a hot climate

    QC for steel structure activities

Objectives

By the end of this training seminar, participants will:

Familiarise all quality management techniques and procedures

Learn available non-destructive testing for concrete and steel structure projects

Understand the practical tools to control the concrete and the whole project that includes field-testing and the required laboratory facilities

Familiarise various techniques for evaluating the structures under construction

Learn modern field measurements such as concrete strength

Familiarise with all quality control techniques in hot climate

Training Methodology

This training seminar will utilize a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The daily workshops will be highly interactive and participative. Videos and photos will be used for illustration.
