Retrofitting and Rehabilitation of Civil Infrastructure

By Prof. Swati Maitra, Prof. Sriman Kumar Bhattacharyya   |   IIT Kharagpur
Learners enrolled: 414
The major objective of this course is to give an in-depth understanding of the various methods of repair, retrofitting and rehabilitation techniques for masonry and concrete structures. The causes and types of deterioration, the evaluation of the existing condition of infrastructure, the materials for repair and retrofitting, the maintenance and strengthening techniques is covered in detail in this course. Seismic retrofitting and design of retrofitted structural components using recent techniques and materials have been included in the course. The course covers the challenging issues for efficient retrofitting and rehabilitation in order to extend the durability of existing structure in a sustainable manner.
