Rationale: Concrete Technology is a core technology subject of the courses of civil engineering group. Concrete is most widely used construction material in all types of civil engineering structures. Concrete is extensively used in the construction of various kinds of buildings, pavements, bridges, dams, waterways, pipes, water tanks, swimming pools etc. Advances in concrete technology have paved the way to make use of locally available materials by judicious selection of materials, its mix proportioning & proper workmanship so as to result in concrete that satisfies the performance criteria of the structure as per design. i.e. strength, durability and resistance to environmental attack. Civil engineering technician is to plan, execute the construction work as per drawing, supervise and ensure the quality of final product of concrete it means strength, durability & finish. For effective supervision & quality control of concrete construction at all stages of concrete chain which broadly consists of supply, storage of concrete ingredients, various concreting operations & testing operations before, during & after construction. For this purpose, a civil engineering technician must have good knowledge of the concrete materials ( i.e. properties of cement, sand, coarse aggregate water & admixtures.) and the main operations of concreting i.e. selection of materials, its mix proportioning, mixing, placing, compaction, curing & finishing. A technician should acquire the skill of testing, supervision of concrete work & interpretation of tests results.
