Concrete mix design involves a process of preparation in which a mix of ingredients creates the required strength and durability for the concrete structure. Because every ingredient in the mix consists of different properties, it’s not an easy task to create a great concrete mix. It is imperative that all ingredients be tested to determine their physical properties and the bearing capacity of the project location.
A civil engineer or an architect is expected that he knows the the concrete mixture and calculations. In this course, you will be able to learn them and the factors to be considered in the design.
Please be advised that this short course is part of Concrete Technology Course. You may notice some lectures that you are interested in and would want to explore. Should you want to know about them and the correct sampling/testing of individual material of construction, we refer you to cei-ph.com/concrete-tech.
At the end of this course, the participants/enrollees are expected to be able to:
- Explain the design mix, data, criteria, standards, testing procedures, and methodologies for concrete construction; and
- Enhance their managerial skills in understanding the correct sampling, testing and project implementation of concrete structure projects.
We are using asynchronous learning which do not occur in the same place at the same time. The lectures are prerecorded and will be available to enrollees for a limited time basis (60-days). The enrollees shall have to watch the first lectures before proceeding to the next ones.
The methodologies to be employed will be lecture-discussion with slide/audio visual presentation. The PDFs are downloadable and advised to be printed prior to every lecture. Intellectual exercise/examination will also be given to gauge the technical learnings acquired by the enrollees. The enrollees are required to pass (50%) the said examination.
The participants/enrollees to this class shall be civil engineers / civil engineering students, Architects, Engineering Geologists and other disciplines related to the course.
Engineers with expertise (with MSCE) on project design, construction methods, materials quality control/assurance implementations, construction supervision and management.
The ACCESS to this online course is 60-Days.
The completion of this course depends on each enrollee's pace and may be scheduled by the enrollees in a regular manner, say every day or every other day.
Skipping ahead or fast-forwarding the lectures is not allowed. If do so, the lecture will NOT be marked as complete.
Once the participant finishes the lectures, he/she is encouraged to take the final examination immediately.
Certificate of Completion/Participation will be given to the participants who will successfully complete the requirements as stated above. The certificate may be used as:
- Self-directed learning and/or life long learning and academic track for your need of CPD points.
- Application for DPWH Accreditation of Project Engineers as well as Materials Engineers.
