CEMENT & CONCRETE SERIES
CONCRETE STRENGTH, CONSISTENCE AND DURABILITY

DATE: 22nd SEPTEMBER 2020

TIME: 3 PM - 5 PM (UTC +8)

OVERVIEW


This series is to introduce the EN approach on the use of concrete for sustainability construction. This replaces the former approach based on British standards in early 2000.Since then several updates and additional supporting EN standards have been added to BS EN206. In both Malaysia and Singapore, national standards are prepared for the supplementary standards published by BSI in UK. The topic for this session covers on:

  • Specification for designed concrete to EN 206 and national complementary standards to EN206 (MS 523/SS 544/BS 8500).
  • Types of concrete – designed concrete, prescribed concrete, designated concrete and proprietary concrete
  • Constituents of concrete – cement, water, aggregates, admixtures, additions and fibres.
  • Strength development and curing classes
  • Consistence classes and test methods including SCC
  • Strength classes – characteristic strength test specimens: cylinder vs cube
