Teaching and Research in “Mineral Admixtures for Sustainable Cement and Concrete”




Statement of Interest:

Since the beginning of my career (year 1975), I am fortunate to have engaged in teaching, research, training and consultancy in the area of cement, concrete and construction. The behavior of structure through its life is the primary concern of an engineer. After publication of my book, “Mineral Admixtures in Cement and Concrete” by CRC Press, I decided to carry out further teaching and research on the subject.

The course, which I propose to teach, is designed keeping in view the requirement of the structural engineers and also of those who are engaged in manufacturing cement and concrete. It should be useful for civil engineering courses, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The focus of teaching and research will be making good, i.e. workable and durable concrete. The physical, mineralogical and chemical characteristics of mineral admixtures will be discussed keeping that aspect in mind. The references to complex issues on microstructure or chemistry will be presented to an extent that help better understanding of the application of mineral admixtures in practice.

8. Book: Under publication; date: 27 August 2012
   Author: Dr J D Bapat
    Publisher: CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, USA
  Contents: The book is written keeping in view the requirement of the engineers in construction practice, primarily the strength and durability of structures and also of those engaged in manufacturing cement and concrete. It should also serve as a reference book for the engineering courses on the subject, both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. As the book is written for engineers in construction practice, the physical, mineralogical and chemical characteristics as well as the references to complex issues on microstructure or chemistry have been presented to an extent that help give better understanding of the application of mineral admixtures.
             The mineral admixtures covered, chapter-wise, under the scope of this book are pulverised fuel ash (PFA), blast furnace slag (BFS), silica fume (SF), rice husk ash (RHA), metakaolin (MK) and some new ones currently under investigation. The Chapters mainly cover the aspects related to the manufacturing and processing, physical characteristics, chemical and mineralogical composition, quality control of the mineral admixture and the reported experiences as well as the provisions of national Standards on its addition to cement and concrete. The Chapter on Hydration, besides presenting the practically relevant aspects of chemistry, covers the impact of the addition of mineral admixtures. The Chapter on Strength and Durability presents mechanisms, models, standards and mitigation of concrete deterioration due to carbonation, alkali-aggregate reactions, chloride attack and corrosion of reinforcement, external as well as internal sulphate attack, decalcification and freeze-thaw action. The understanding of the materials aspects of the mineral admixtures and their impact on the hydration, strength and durability of concrete will make a positive contribution, encouraging greater and more fruitful utilisation of these and even other wastes in cement and concrete and lead to the sustainable growth of both cement and construction industry on the one hand and the waste producing industries as well, on the other.

9. Proposed Course:
Title: Mineral Admixtures for Sustainable Cement and Concrete   
Contents: Mainly from the own book mentioned as above. Current developments will be added.
Duration: 35-40 periods 
Service: As a visiting or adjunct professor. The "Advanced Certificate Programme" can also be offered on the subject.  
Research: Interested in guiding research work
