Course Description

The engineering properties of concrete are basically developed or evolved as a result of microstructural changes that happen in Portland cement systems. This course introduces students to the basics of concrete science involving the role of concrete ingredients and/or the cement hydration process. In addition, we will discuss the fresh and hardened concrete properties that are required for an engineer at an advanced level. Also, the test methods for assessment of different properties and the parameters affecting test methods are elaborated to students.


Lecture Time: Monday &Thursday: 12:00 noon to 1:15 pm
