Concrete 2017 and ICDC 2017 are pleased to announce two special workshops that will be held in Adelaide prior to the commencement of the Conference.
Concrete 2017 and ICDC 2017 delegates can add either of these workshops to their conference registration. Registration for either of these workshop is available to all industry members.
Cement Chemistry for Engineers
Date: Sunday 22nd October 2017
Venue: The Bradley Forum, Hawke Building
UniSA, City West Campus, North Terrace, Adelaide
Time: 8:30am to 5:00pm
CIA Members $220/$250
Key note speaker, Professor Karen Scrivener, will deliver a full day course on cement chemistry. The course is a one day version of Professor Scriveners widely acclaimed more detailed course on cement chemistry that is conducted through RILEM, and is tailored for engineers, materials specialists, and cement & concrete practitioners.
The course will commence at 8.30am and conclude at 5.00pm, and will include the following topics:
- Setting the scene – options for sustainable development of concrete to meet the world demand and implications for cement chemistry.
- Basics of Cement hydration – Nature of hydrates, thermodynamic prediction of hydrate assemblages, and mechanisms governing kinetics.
- Physical structure of cement paste.
- Impact of Supplementary Cementitious Materials (SCMs) on hydration and microstructure.
- Impact of SCM on Durability, particularly ASR.
fib Model Code 2020 – The World Durability Code: Design Session
Date: Sunday 22nd October 2017
Venue: Room H-6 12, Hawke Building
UniSA, North Terrace, Adelaide
Time: 1.00pm to 5:30pm
CIA Members $165/$195
This special session will review the development of the next fib Model Code (MC2020) and the durability requirements within the code. In particular the workshop will consider the following question – “How do we move forward with design of new concrete structures and the through-life care of existing ones?”
This half day workshop will commence at 1.00pm and conclude at 5.30pm, and will feature a “who’s who” of international concrete durability expertise, with an agenda that includes:
