Properties of Concrete: Essential Guidelines for Specification

Concrete is the most commonly used construction material in the world, so it follows that understanding the properties of this highly versatile material should be at the top of every structural engineer's priority list. This presentation will explain how the properties of concrete can change due to its constituent materials, influence of commonly added materials such as fly ash and admixtures and the practicalities of producing and placing concrete to achieve the specified design strength.

Steel Fibre Reinforced and Ultra-High Performance Concrete

After 40 years of research in the development and placement of fibres in reinforced concrete, the concept has matured to the stage where it is finding increasing use in practice. This seminar will provide the current state of practice for design and construction of steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) and in the use ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) in structures.
