Concrete and Steel Construction Quality Control and Assurance

Concrete and Steel Construction Quality Control and Assurance

Nowadays there is huge competition among personnel and among companies
as well. The main tools to make gains in the race are being aware and clearly
understanding the principles of how to achieve high quality with lower
costs. The construction industry in general is growing very fast, and due to
globalization any company can gain a contract anywhere.
The aim of the book is to present up-to-date, effective quality techniques

that can be used in the construction industry. This book provides practi-
cal and theoretical information about total quality management and all the

quality tools that can be used during a project’s life cycle.
This book can be used as a handbook by quality inspectors, junior and
senior design engineers, the construction industry, and concrete and steel
construction project management.

Construction quality control is the main way to achieve a competitive edge
in the market, so this book is prepared for easy use by civil and structure
engineers and any engineer working in project or construction management

of concrete and steel projects. This book steers away from complicated statis-
tics terms but a strong theoretical background is helpful for understanding

concrete construction quality control criteria.
This book is comprised of eight chapters. The first two chapters provide
the total quality management tools that can be applied during construction
at any stage of a project—from the client idea to operation and maintenance.

The next four chapters cover the principles of quality control for the con-
crete industry with the practical tests that can be used in fresh and hardened

concrete including advanced concrete technology such as self-compacting
concrete and high-strength concrete. Chapter 7 focuses on quality control
for steel structures by focusing on welding terminology and procedures,
and Chapter 8 presents the nondestructive tests for a steel structure and the
proper way to achieve the best quality.
