Characterization of Construction Materials

NPTEL and Indian Institute of Technology Madras via YouTube

Overview

COURSE OUTLINE : The objective of the course is to introduce students to the characterization of construction materials and their behaviour, with a view of developing their understanding of the mechanisms that govern the performance of these materials. The course will be focused primarily on cement and concrete, and include a few techniques; the physics of the techniques and their application to cement science. Lab demonstrations and experiments will be covered.
