About Course

Advanced Topics in the Science and Technology of Concrete.

International experts on concrete science will give brief lectures to highlight advanced topics based on their own research. This will introduce the student to new research fields and learn more than what is usually covered in courses on concrete technology.

INTENDED AUDIENCE: Research scholars and scientists working in the areas of concrete science and technology

What Will You Learn?

  • Week 1: Guest lecture on Calcium Sulphoaluminate Cement, by Prof. Piyush Chaunsali, IIT Madras. Guest lectures on Micro-structural characterisation of cementitious materials, Prof. Karen Scrivener, EPFL, Switzerland
  • Week 2: Closed-loop testing of concrete. Guest lectures on Performance of Fiber reinforced materials: Historic prospective and glance into the future, by Prof. Surendra P. Shah, Northwestern University
  • Week 3:Durability parameters of concrete. Sulphate attack. Guest lectures on Development and performance approach for durability and service life production for structures, by Prof. Mark Alexander, Univ. of Cape Town
  • Week 4: Corrosion of steel reinforcement in concrete. Life cycle assessment of concrete.
