ICYA-4404 Advanced Concrete Technology

This module offers the concepts and tools to design a durable and sustainable concrete based on local and international standards. The materials (cement, supplementary cementitious materials, water, aggregates and admixtures) involved in the mix design are studied considering their effect on the final concrete performance. Quality assurance is also studied due to its significant role in concrete design. In the last part of the module, concrete durability is studied considering service life; this last topic also covers different alternatives to mitigate durability problems and concrete pathologies depending on the element or the structure and considering local and international standards.
