Concrete for Railway Engineering                                                                                                                                                                        

A One-day Course - Technology and Management of Concrete used for Railway Construction

It has been said that concrete is the most important construction material used by Mankind. This is partly due to the huge volumes produced and also due to the unique way in which concrete changes from its fresh, wet consistency to develop into reliable, strong and long-lasting structural elements.
Concrete used in Railway Engineering is expected to be safe and durable. Sometimes it may need to be visually appealing or designed to resist particularly aggressive environments. In all cases concrete needs to be well managed and this new training course is designed to provide an understanding of the processes involved in making a success of every concreting operation specific to Railway Engineering.

Aims and Objectives:

The course will enable delegates to:

Learning Outcomes:

Mode of Delivery:

Illustrated lectures and tutorials

Benefits Perceived by Participants:

Intended for:

The course is suitable for a wide range of personnel engaged in Railway Engineering particularly those responsible for drawing up concrete specifications, checking or interpreting mix design submissions and whose role involves the supervision of concrete construction as applied to Railway Engineering. This includes the choice of materials, recognition of sound construction site practice and the use of correct terminology applied to concrete.
