SEEM 534 Structural Rehabilitation: Reading list

SEEM 534 Advanced Structural Rehabilitation


Department: MSc Structural Engineering
Module Description: This module will enable students to gain knowledge and understanding and provide scientific and practical information on a wide range of structural durability issues. The module discusses a number of chemical as well as physical deterioration mechanisms of concrete and reinforced concrete and the modelling and predicting of their effects and also discusses what to consider in the design, selection of materials, and the construction processes to improve and control the concrete durability, the deterioration of other structural materials such as steel, concrete and composites will also be covered. This module will also enable students to gain knowledge and understanding of the process of inspecting of structural deterioration and a range of methods of repairs, retrofitting, and protection.
