Course Objective

We know that concrete used constructions the most popular materaials in this industrial area. Mix design and pumping and curing must be know completely.The most important porperty in concrete is compression strength. İt’s useful to know some methods concrete compression strength. Some admixtures which improves concrete properties must be know by civil engineers. İn this class its aimed to inform the properties of concrete, some factors that effects concrete properties, curing and protection of concrete acceptance criteria

Course Content

Giving concrete and concrete-forming material in detail, what are the materials used in concrete Concretes olduğu.özel be applied to information about what the cure conditions vermek.beton and what effect on concrete properties. In special cases, how the concrete is poured and measures will be taken subject to the acceptance criteria, the concrete will be described .
