This course prepares students for the American Concrete Institute’s Field 1 Concrete testing certificate test. Testing is conducted by an outside authority. Students will interoperate soil sieve analysis relative to concrete characteristics. Concrete batch and strength will be examined. Methods of testing will be taught and practiced through lab experience and analytical reporting. Structural and thin-walled steel will be presented and students will work with these products in a lab setting. A visit to a batch plant or bridge reconstruction usually concludes the lab.
1 hour of lecture, 2 hours of lab per week
