Course Aims
This course is aimed at informing students about ordinary Portland cement with Portland clinker (accordance with TS EN 197-1), other cements (calcium aluminate, active belite with boron, super sulfate), the other binders (hydraulic lime, gypsium, geopolymer etc.), its features and their usage areas and the innovations in this area.
Course Goals
The student learns the types, properties and usage areas of ordinary and special cements. They also have information about alternative binders other than the cement used in the construction sector.
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
They know general and special cement types, usage areas. They also have alternative binders and usega areas such as hydraulic lime, gypsum, geopolymer, magnesium oxide cement.
Course Contents
Ordinary cement types with Portland clinker according to TS EN 197-1 standard. -Physical and chemical properties of ordinary cements. -The basic phases of Portland clinker. Hydration mechanism of ordinary cements. -National and international standards about general cements. -Usage areas according to types of ordinary cement. -Types and hydration mechanisms and their applications of special cements. -Types, properties, and usage areas of other binders.

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.
