Malaysia has been very lucky in the sense that we do not have a serious earthquake threat. In this respect our concrete constructions such as buildings, bridges, dams, tunnels etc are not suppose to be subjected to vibration that may lead to damage of building and may be collapse. However, despite this advantage, a number of building damage and collapse were reported recently. Such a phenomenon together with that experienced by our neighboring countries suggested that quality buildings, bridges and other concrete construction is necessary.
Non-destructive Testing (NDT) technology has been known to have a significant contribution in ensuring the integrity of buildings, bridges, dams etc. throughout the world. Such an expertise was developed in Nuclear malaysia as a result of years of experience and extensive research. It is our commitment to disseminate and share the knowledge and experience for the betterment of our national construction industries.
This training course is designed to equip the participants with the necessary knowledge of the NDT methods applicable to the inspection and examination the quality of concrete used in construction industries. It covers both theorical and practical aspects and conducted entirely by Malaysian Nuclear Agency experts.
