Concrete Technology

Concrete Technology. Instructor: Prof. Bishwajit Bhattacharjee, Department of Civil Engineering, IIT Delhi. The course on Concrete Technology focuses on concrete making materials including supplementary cementitious materials. Concrete production process also forms a part of the discussion. Going through the course one would develop first-hand knowledge on concrete production processes and properties and uses of concrete as a modern material of construction. The courses will enable one to make appropriate decision regarding ingredient selection and use of concrete. (from
