Abstract:
From a construction perspective, the attainment of durability in construction practices involve an understanding and elimination of those undesirable effects that may be imparted to the concrete both in its plastic and hardened state due to lack of control, bad attitude and oversight. This involves consideration of the importance of the quality of the cover concrete, water/binder ratio, concrete manufacture procedures, placement and compaction, bleeding, setting time, slump loss, finishing, curing, thermal stresses, drying shrinkage, design detailing, constructability and post pour cover checks. These matters are considered further in this workshop.
