Course Objective Examination and evaluation of the internal structures of materials with properties has become more important in recent years. This course aims to evaluate the features in conjunction with the internal structure.
Course Content Microstructure of materials (metals, concrete, plastics and ceramics). Relations between microstructure and properties of materials. Elastic and plastic behaviour. Fracture under uniaxial loading. Deformation and fracture under multiaxial loading, various mechanical models for concrete subjected to multiaxial loading. Shrinkage, creep and relaxation, creep theories in concrete. Fatigue. Technological properties (hardness, abrasion resistance, impact resistance, plastic forming, bonding). New cement based materials: Ultra-high strength concretes, Macro defect free cement, Reactive powder concrete, Sifcon, Fibre reinforced concrete, High strength lightweight concretes.
