  • The student will have knowledge of the need to assess the availability and suitability of the materials needed to manufacture RCC with qualities meeting the structural and durability requirements.  Materials discussed are cementitious materials, aggregates, available water supply, and chemical admixtures.

 

  • The student will have knowledge of the proper selection of mass or structural RCC mixture proportions necessary to obtain an economical, durable concrete.  Additionally, the student will have knowledge that RCC proportions may also be greatly influenced by project-specific requirements such as material availability, hauling and conveying methods, and spreading and compaction equipment.

 

  • The student will have knowledge of hardened RCC properties, including strength, elastic properties, tensile strain capacity, creep, volume change, thermal properties, permeability, density, and durability.

 

  • The student will have knowledge of factors necessary in the design and construction of an RCC structure, including the size and location of the structure, type of structure, available materials, specific project features, annual maintenance required for the completed project, the impact of the length of the construction season, and the concerns of the public.

 

  • The student will have knowledge of construction methods and equipment, including RCC production controls, RCC production plants, RCC transportation systems, placement procedures, and installing joints, waterstops, and drains
