This course prepares the student for the American Concrete Institute’s Field 1 Concrete Certificate. The student interoperates soil sieve analysis relative to concrete characteristics. Concrete batch and strength are examined. Methods of testing are taught and practiced through laboratory experience and analytical reporting. Structural and thin-walled steel are presented and the student works with these products in the 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
