Course Aims
Understanding and learning of basic principles and technical properties about deterioration mechanisms of concrete, corrosion of metals and cathodic protection (with laboratory applications).
Course Goals
1) Understanding and learning of basic principles about deterioration mechanisms of concrete, corrosion of metals and cathodic protection.
2) Understanding and applying of technical properties about deterioration mechanisms of concrete, corrosion of metals and cathodic protection (with laboratory applications).
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
1) Bring the basic scientific and engineering informations into life
2) Understanding material properties and its behavior.
3) Bring the basic concrete technology into life
4) Design of engineering structures and projecting the basic knowledge, and the basic knowledge required to design, to the horizon and skills.
5) Having enough durability knowledge under severe conditions for concrete.
Course Contents
The objective of the Concrete Durability. Causes and factors of the deterioration mechanisms. election of cement, aggregate and water/ cement ratio according to environmental effects by using national and international standards. Design of conventional and high performance concrete under severe conditions. Deterioration mechanisms (chloride attack, sulphate attack, freezing and thawing, alkali aggregate reaction, sea water attack). Corrosion of metals. Cathodic protection.

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
