Concrete is the most consumed man made material on the face of this planet. Do to it cost and availability it has become the most preferred material to be used for the construction of many gigantic and critical structures such as residential and commercial buildings, bridges, dams and many others. The usage of reinforced concrete in the construction of 451.9 meter high petronas tower illustrated the importance of concrete in the development of our nation.
Nondestructive Testing (NDT) is a very powerful tool for quality that attributes significantly toward ensuring the integrity of concrete structures. NDT methods such as ultrasonic, radiography, ground penetrating radar, electromagnetic methods, etc have been well accepted for this purpose, especially in the developed countries. However, it is still considered as new in many developing countries. For this reason the International Atomic Energy Agency have utilized malaysian expert from Malaysian Nuclear Agency to disseminate this technology to membe r states such as Sri Lnka, Ghana, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria and many others.
Malaysian Nuclear Agency is now extending this effort to share this technology with member of civil engineering and NDT communities in malaysia. This training course is designed to expose the interested parties with various NDT method applicable for civil engineering purpose. Both theoritical and practical aspects of methods that include radiography, nultrasonic, ground penetrating radar electromagnetic method s, thermography, etc will be discussed and demonstrated to provide an optimum understanding and appreciation to all participants toward this subject matter.
- Have adequate lnowledge and experience to perform or to supervise NDT inspection applicable for civil engineering structures.
- Have good understanding on the advantages and limitations of various NDT methods applicable for concrete inspections.
