Modern concrete is a highly sophisticated material, where it in many respects is possible to accurately engineer a broad range of specific properties, for example based on selection of the concrete ingredients, by controlling the concrete mix composition, or by appropriately operating the subsequent mixing, casting and curing process. This course aims at transferring in-depth knowledge on selected areas of concrete science and technology stretching from its design to its end-of-life. The topics dealt with include: Fresh properties, non-destructive testing, curing and hydration, industrial by-products, property development, shrinkage and cracking, standards and specifications, life cycle assessment, durability, service life evolution. The course includes three practical exercises, a study tour and various presentations given by the participants. For each course module there are preparatory readings (typically two scientific papers). In order to receive course credits (ECTS credits) participants need to make a scientific poster, give a group presentation and successfully pass a quiz which evaluates the learning outcomes from all course modules and readings. The doctoral course takes place in continuation of an ACI-NDT Specialist Certification course in the same location. It is expected that some may participate in both events, but apart from this, these two events are independent.
