  • Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete: Behavior, Modelling and Design
    by Harvinder Singh


The basic course on Civil Engineering Materials deals with some fundamentals related to concrete and concrete materials, besides dealing with masonry, steel etc.

The specific course on “Concrete Technology” focuses more on detailed understanding of concrete making materials including supplementary cementitious materials.

Concrete production process also forms a part of the discussion. Recent developments in concrete materials are also given adequate consideration.

Going through the course one would develop adequate understanding on concrete production process and properties and uses of concrete as a modern material of construction.

The courses will enable one to make appropriate decision regarding ingredient selection and use of concrete.


Cements, supplementary cementitious material: pozzolans, aggregates and Chemical admixtures.

Mix Designs methods and quality control. Concrete Production, batching, Mixing, transporting, placing compaction and curing.

Workability, rheological aspects. Mechanical Properties at hardened state. Long term properties such as creep and shrinkage.

Durability, rebar corrosion etc. Modern concrete such as high performance concrete, RPC, FRC, SCC etc.
