Seminar
Admixtures for Sustainable Concrete
This seminar looks at how concrete, and the use of admixtures, has evolved over the years. It will help you to understand which concrete admixtures are currently available in the market and what their benefits are in terms of sustainability. You will learn about the sustainable benefits and use of additives such as cement replacement materials and fibres. The seminar also explores the future of concrete and some of the potentially industry changing innovations such as the digitisation of construction with Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), Building Information Modelling (BIM), cement free concrete, 3D printing and automated construction. This seminar will help you to understand the following topics:
- How modern admixtures support the production and use of sustainable concrete
- The relevant European and British standards and guidelines used for specifying and designing concrete mixes
- The history of concrete evolution and the use of admixtures
- The currently available concrete admixtures and their benefits in terms of sustainability
- The sustainable benefits and use of additives such as cement replacement materials and fibres
- The future of concrete and some of the potentially industry changing innovations such as the digitisation of construction with Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), Building Information Modelling (BIM), cement free concrete, 3D printing and automated construction
- Examples of best practice, where the use of advanced admixture technologies has improved their environmental impact of some well-known structures

Seminar
Protecting Concrete Subject to Biogenic Sulphuric Acid Corrosion in Wastewater Treatment Facilities
This seminar looks at the factors to consider when protecting concrete structures subject to Biogenic Sulphuric Acid (BSA) corrosion in wastewater treatment facilities. It will help you to understand the key parameters necessary to determine successful diagnosis and protection strategies for these structures, and how to identify the types of extreme conditions encountered in wastewater facilities. The seminar also explores existing material technologies available to protect structures and how to test and measure the key properties of chemical resistance. Additionally, you will learn which British standards and guidelines should be used to quantify the performance of protective coating systems and membranes. This seminar covers the following topics:
- The key parameters to determine successful diagnosis and protection strategies for structures in wastewater treatment facilities
- The types of extreme conditions encountered in wastewater facilities
- How the quality and quantity of wastewater has evolved over time and the issues that have arisen from this change
- The evaluation of existing material technologies to protect structures
- How to test and measure the key properties of chemical resistance, crack bridging and resistance to Biogenic Sulfuric Acid (BSA) corrosion
- The relevant British standards and guidelines for the test methods that can be used to quantify the performance of protective coating systems and membranes
- Examples of best practice where the use of correct material specifications has ensured suitable and successful applications
