                                      One of the major problems in concrete structures is the lack of durability of concrete.
Objectives of the Course              Therefore, the aim of this course is to teach significance and control of various causes
                                      of concrete deterioration.
Learning Outcomes                     To learn about durability of concrete. To be familiar with laboratory experiments.
                                      Properties of concrete. Durability of concrete. Classification of concrete deterioration.
                                      Physical, chemical and biological deterioration of concrete. Freezing and thawing.
