Workshop on Characterisation and Micro-Structure Analysis of Concrete at VIT Vellore [Sept 17]: Registrations Open!: Expired


The School of Civil Engineering (SCE) is a part of VIT since its inception. The School has grown tremendously over the years and is now recognized as one of the major engineering schools in VIT. The School has more than 50 faculty members from various reputed institutes such as IITs, IISc, etc.

It is well known that the microstructure of concrete has a significant role in influencing its properties to include strength and durability due to the effect of various parameters like porosity, permeability, and pore size distribution. To achieve high strength and good durability properties, to prevent concrete deterioration, to reduce the capillary porosity and to accomplish a substantial reduction in the total porosity, a need to reduce the gel porosity is required.

This leads to a change in the C-S-H structure from porous to more crystalline phase, i.e., change in concrete microstructure. Therefore, gaining a deeper understanding of how the performance of concrete is impacted by its microstructure is of prime significance. This workshop aims to provide a platform to impart knowledge on the microstructure of concrete and its influence on the behavior of concrete.
