Advanced Concrete Technology

This course explores the materials science of concrete, and attempts to bring about the understanding of concrete behavior from a fundamental perspective. The first part of the course discusses the structure and properties of concrete making materials. This is followed by mixture proportioning of high performance concrete, and a study of selected topics regarding fresh and hardened concrete behavior. The final part of the course deals with long term performance issues, related to creep, shrinkage and durability of concrete.INTENDED AUDIENCE: Post-graduate students, and final year undergraduate studentsPREREQUISITES: Basic course on Construction Materials in UG level. Additional course on Concrete Technology (UG level) is optional.INDUSTRY SUPPORT: Civil contracting firms, Ready mixed concrete companies, Cement companies, Construction chemicals companies, Materials research laboratories etc.
