About the course

Systems should be developed, designed, and modified with reliability as a key goal. The attendees will apply practical tools for integrating engineering, business, operations, and maintenance perspectives into a total life cycle approach to asset and cost management.

This course provides the tools for prioritizing structure failures so that effective failure management strategies (i.e., maintenance plans, one-time repair) can be developed to control the risk of losses (e.g., productivity, safety, quality).

This course is intended for civil engineers who are interested in the area of inspection, assessment and repair of concrete structures. This course enables delegates already familiar with what concrete is, to develop skills in effective specification, production and end users of concrete. The course also covers basics as well as advanced concepts up-to-date technology.

Through several workshops and exercises, the attendees will thoroughly cover both traditional and risk-based analysis methodologies by using quantitative risk assessment technique. Anyone interested in improving their structure maintenance program should consider attending the course.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Apply decision tree in conceptual design
  • Introduce assessment of concrete structure
  • Understand Risk Based Inspections
  • Developing an In-service Inspection Plan
  • Implement maintenance plan and practice coaching to develop specific reliability-focused design strategy
  • Analyze the structural failure and build knowledge of qualitative risk assessment methods to discover when and how to quantify the results
  • Acquire a clear understanding of the most critical aspects of the structure
