Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Extend students' knowledge in field fundamental kinds of inorganic binders, their prepare, measurement and apllication. Special binders systems their advantages and their using. The alternative binders systems on the base latent hydraulic substances.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The subject defines inorganic bonding systems, both hydraulic and air as well. Student is acquainted with issues of evaluating the suitability of raw materials for preparation of define materials. Student also get to know technology of their manufacturing and study processes of their solidifying and hardening. Attention is paid to geopolymers. Subject contain part about castable systems.
