Concrete with Supplementary Cementitious Materials

Scope of doctoral course segment

Hydraulic and pozzolanic industrial by-products, natural resources and societal waste are increasingly being used as valuable, supple­mentary cementitious materials (SCMs) in concrete. Materials such as fly ash, blastfurnace slag, silica fume, calcined clay and limestone are important to obtain concrete with improved and targeted properties and not the least to make the construction industry more sustainable and less CO2-intensive. The doctoral course segment will bring you up-to-date on this important area.

Course contents

The course will cover the most important topics in relation to the use of SCMs in concrete technology including:

Properties of SCM
Mix proportions
Fresh concrete
Hydration reactions
Hardened concrete
Durability aspects

The course consists of lectures, written exercises and hands-on laboratory exercises. Notes will be provided before the course.
