Concrete Technology

Por: Swayam . en: ,


This course broadly encompasses the study of properties of ingredients of concrete, design of concrete mix, production of concrete and various concreting operations. Cementing material is the vital component of the concrete, hence study of process of manufacturing of cement, types of cement and their properties are covered in this course. Study of properties of aggregates and water also finds their due coverage in the course. Process of concrete production and concreting operations also forms an essential component of the course. In addition to the study of special purpose concretes, the course also provides the due coverage of admixtures which are added to modify the properties of concrete. Properties of concrete in plastic as well as in hardened stage find its due coverage in this course. The course aims at imparting knowledge and skill to supervise concreting operations involving proportioning, mixing, transporting, placing, compacting, finishing and curing of concrete. Hence this course has its stand alone value also.
