Module summary

Students recieve informations about basic physical and chemical phemonena important from the point of view of technological processes of mineral binders manufacturing as well as their design and utlization. The acquired knowledge allows to understand main technological operations in mineral binders industry. Special empasis is also put on the hydration process and its connection with properties of final cement-based materials.

Module content
Seminar classes (30h):

During the classes teacher presents a series of lectures on following topics:
- basic physical and chemical phenomena important from the point of view of cementitous materials science and technology
- selected mineral binders manufacturing process
- hydration of selected mineral binders
- supplementary cementitous materials
- influence of manufacturing conditions on the properties of cement based materials
Voluntary students presents oral presentations on the topic given by teacher.

Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Seminar classes: Lectures, discussions, oral presentations of students
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

No exam. The final mark is resulted by the attendance of the student and voluntary oral presentation.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Seminar classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Teacher presents a series of lectures describing the chemistry and technology of cementitous materials. Students are encouraged to take a part in the discussion. Students may give an oral presentation in order to get a higher mark.
Method of calculating the final grade:

Final grade is calculated on the basis of students attendance and activity during the classes, as well as oral presentation mark. Oral presentation is not obligatory, but for those who will make it the final grade is better.

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

Students who are in arrears should contact the teacher to determine the details of the pass. Most usually it is final test or oral presentation.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

The student should speak English at the Intermediate or higher level.
