CE 58xx – Advanced Concrete Materials
To acquire an advanced understanding of concrete materials and behavior. This class will focus on the design of concrete mixtures for strength and durability. In addition, laboratories will be conducted to examine testing methods for strength, permeability, freeze-thaw, sulfate attack, etc. Additional topics will include critical properties of concrete, concrete construction, quality and testing, and trouble shooting and prevention
CE 58xx – Prestressed Concrete Design
This course is intended to provide the engineering student with the basic tools required to design and construct prestressed concrete structures. Emphasis will be placed on the behavior of prestressed concrete under load along with potential failure mechanisms.
