Free Online Training Course on Structural Application of Alkali-Activated Concrete | 17-20 January 2022


This is a 4-days course, formatted as an online interactive training school. The course gives excellent exposure to the use of alkali-activated concrete for structural applications. For further information look at the flyer and the information provided below.

The course "Structural Application of Alkali-Activated Concrete" is open to PhD students, practising engineers and interested people who are dealing with the design of concrete structures, and are interested in the application of more eco-friendly structures made of alkali-activated concrete.

The course provides a sound introduction to alkali-activated materials, discusses its application for new concrete structures as well as for strengthening existing structures. During the course several practical cases will be discussed, including insights by practitioners. Structural behaviour will be further illustrated by lab testing cases. 

The course will be organised as a fully online event supported by an electronic teaching platform. The course schedules dynamic teaching sessions where the teaching team will interact with students through quizzes, Q&A and round table discussion. At the end of the course, an evaluation test will allow participants to test themselves on the new knowledge acquired. For this purpose, dedicated off-line working sessions are scheduled as well to allow students to look into the course material.

We look forward to welcoming you at this course,
