Who should attend?
The Short Course presents selected mineralogical and geochemical aspects of clinker and cement production, cement hydration, con¬crete durability and damage, and their characterization. The Short Course is intended for anyone with an interest in the detailed material properties of clinker, cement and/or concrete, whether from a civil/concrete engineering or mineralogy/geochemistry perspective.
