Provide basic training in the field of materials and laboratory techniques for testing. The student must be able to: select materials; study an aggregate; determine the mix of two or more aggregates, study the composition of a concrete, to do concrete tests.
1-Aggregates.Properties of raw materials, particle size analysis 2-Mortars: definition, types, properties, shrinkage, adhesion and additives. 3-Concrete. Classes of concrete, environmental exposure, study of the composition of concrete, tests on fresh and hardened concrete.4-Binders: definition, air and hydraulic binders, cements.
The assessment is based on reports made- (30%) and a written test (intermediate test or exam)-(70%).
