CET-215 - Construction Materials2 credits
An advanced study of behavior, applications, and quality control and testing of engineering materials such as metals, concrete, wood, and soils. Industry and professional standards (ASTM, AASHTO, and ACI) will be referenced and applied in data collection, measurement, and experimental techniques. Students will learn industry-standard testing and control techniques; determine mechanical properties; evaluate and compare stresses, strains, and deformations; and explore means and methods considerations. The course will include preparation for ACI licensure in concrete field inspection and soils testing and certification.
