Rationale
Cement mortar and concrete are the most widely used and versatile construction materials. It is the material of choice where strength, impermeability, durability, performance, fire resistance and abrasion resistance are required.
Concrete is generally a site-made material unlike other materials of construction and as such can vary to a great extent in its quality, properties and performance owing to use of natural materials except cement. The knowledge of concrete and its properties in the plastic condition and in hardened condition are highly important in order to make Civil Engineering Structure safe and serviceable. This course focuses on students’ acquisition of knowledge, skills & practices in concrete works. The knowledge and application of such aspects is essential in developing a good technician who should be conversant with the tests of various components of concrete and site practices to maintain quality of concrete works.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning out comes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Evaluate physical properties of cement, sand and aggregates.
ii. Describe proper method for making and curing of concrete.
iii.Measure important properties of fresh and hardened cement concrete including NDT.
iv. Ex plain properties of va rious t ypes o f Admix tures and the ir utilit y
v. Design Concrete Mix as per IS method
vi. Explain various types of special concrete and their use.
vii. Explain methods to prevent and repair different types of the crack
viii. Prepare summary of at least one research paper on concrete from any journal of civil engineering
