The first of a series of interactive distance learning programs
specifically designed for training individuals on cement and concrete
technology. This fully narrated CD provides an intense self-contained course on
supplementary cementing materials (SCMs) and their impact on the durability,
workability, economy, and sustainability of concrete. It covers the production
process as well as the physical and chemical characteristics of the most common
SCMs used in concrete construction--fly ash, slag, silica fume, and natural
pozzolans--and their effect on fresh and hardened concrete properties.
The course is designed for cement manufacturers, ready-mix concrete producers, concrete contractors, consultants, architects, specifiers, and other design professionals dealing with the use of concrete as a building material.
