ICE East Midlands Graduates and Students Committee invites members to a webinar entitled: ‘Why do we continually have to test Concrete and how?’. This online lecture will be delivered by Mark Sedgley.
The talk will include:
Why do we continually have to test concrete and how?
What is the future of reinforced concrete and how will we test it?
Reinforced concrete is a dominant construction material. China recently used up more concrete in three years than the United States did in the entire twentieth century, and the curve keeps pointing upwards. However, If cement was a country, it would be the third largest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world, after China and the US.
This lecture will also include questions that engineers should review for the future:
Mark graduated in Civil and Structural Engineering from Cardiff University in 1982. He became a reinforced concrete engineer with Balfour Beatty and has also worked in the UK on Pond 5 at Sellafield, and Fort Halstead Munitions tests in Sevenoaks, a Nuclear Command Centre near London and a bridge near Stoke.
Mark transferred to Saudi Arabia to work on a new city Airport and has also been involved in associate projects in UAE and Bahrain. He has also worked for Pioneer Concrete (now Hanson) and later on transferred to USA then to China, then to Thailand and finally to Russia.
Four years ago, he joined Cooper Technology based at Ripley, UK.
