One Day National Seminar on Advanced Microstructure analysis of Concrete and its interpretation 2019


Concrete is a composite material consists of cement, fine and coarse aggregates. The binder medium involves a mixture of hydraulic cement, water and several admixtures. Cement when it reacts with water sets and hardens which leads to the formation of a solid matrix. Microstructure of the concrete will determine strength, stiffness, toughness resistance to moisture, ionic transport and reinforcement steel corrosion of concrete. Therefore knowing the microstructure and its characterization is important in making the next generation of sustainable binders. Microanalysis of concrete is a non-trivial task and needs the sophisticated techniques including, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), 3-D Tomography, Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry (MIP) etc.,
This is a crutial program aimed for faculties with limited experience in material characterization, undergraduate and post graduate students and research scholars in civil engineering. Practicing civil engineers and industry researchers will also find this course very helpful during their analysis.


Concrete Overview: Cement Chemistry, Microstructure Characterization, Tools and Techniques for analysis - X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), 3D X-Ray Tomography, EDAX. Hands on Training is planned for the participants during the course
