Course Description

The concrete design and construction precaution in ACI will be discussed deeply to assist the trainer be familiar with this code and know about its strong and week point. The acceptance and evaluation of concrete is the main aim for engineers working in concrete construction so it will be clarified in this course.

The design of form work and steel detailing will be introduce in this course in scope of ACI requirements. To protect steel bars from corrosion the ACI provides many specifications and recommendation to avoid steel corrosion so the course will highlight this issue and addition to that the construction of concrete in hot climate.

ACI recently introduce its standards for evaluating the existing structure according to certain procedure so in this course will present it and provide the code procedure for repair. Moreover, the ACI define the structure system in case of earthquake load so this course will introduce it with specification requirement to design the structure, which are effected by earthquake.

Course Objective

The objective of this seminar is to train people who are interested in using American Concrete Institute Standard ACI to be familiar with using this standard. The concept and basics of codes and standard will be introduced concerning the probability of failure specifically in ACI. The recent ACI code will be presented for design and construction for concrete structure.
