Materials

Introduction course of material science applied to usual building materials, especially concrete and metals. Description of their fabrication, mechanical and thermal properties and use in construction.

Building materials + Laboratory work

Materials science of common non metallic building materials, with emphasis on cementitious materials (concrete). Chemical composition, fabrication and behaviour in service

Cementitious materials (advanced)

Discussion of topical subjects related to the current use of cementitious materials. Through a guided literature survey prepare a presentation in a group on a topical issue

Limestone-Calcined Clay - Cement : Characterisation methods

Le but est de former doctorants et post doctorants aux méthodes de charactérisation des ciments composés comme la microstructure, la diffraction des rayons X, la calorimétrie, la formulation et la durabilité dans le cadre des actions internationales du project LC3 financé par la DDC.
