Use data on the properties of materials to calculate their performance in service using scientific principles 2. Demonstrate an understanding of the different performance measures that are used for construction materials and evaluate the materials by calculation or discussion. 3. Use different resources and engineering principles to calculate physical properties of materials from laboratory data and present reports on them. Outcomes (as mentioned in MIG CIVL 0010): 1. Evaluate the relative performance of different materials and, in particular, their relative durability. 2. Calculate their properties and discuss the suitability of a wide range of materials for use in construction. 3. Carry out laboratory investigations and draw conclusions from experimental data on materials and present clear reports on the results and conclusions 1 Materials 2-CIVIL 0010-A-Fall 16—CW2-PMM TASK: Select any one of the following projects. 1. Use of Advanced construction materials in building construction (Discuss in detail about any innovative material used in construction including its physical and chemical properties based on experimental data available in literature) a. Innovative use of concrete (or) b. Special use of wood as construction material (or) c. Low cost materials in construction (or) d. Bituminous as civil engineering construction material 2. Design a mix using cement replacement materials and find slump and perform penetration test to find setting time of concrete and compare values with normal concrete a. Replacement materials may be for cement, sand or aggregate (or) b. Can also use chemical admixtures 3. Design a mix using cement replacement materials and find slump and compression strength and compare values with normal concrete a. Replacement materials may be for cement, sand or aggregate (or) b. Can also use chemical admixtures 4. Causes, Prevention and Repair of Cracks In Building. Suggest suitable Non Destructive Testing methods to analyze cracks with experimental data collected from online resources. a. Rebound hammer available in lab can be used to measure the strength of existing structures selected for study. 5.

You will find in the following some basic instructions on how to prepare the geological report for field trips. Report Format  The size limit: Normally, contain your report in 4-10 pages of written text plus additional pages for Figures (index).  Follow specified spacing. Generally use 1.5 x line spacing unless advised.  Start with the title page (including your name) or student number as requested.  Include your own field sketches or photographs. It is generally better to position figures within the text rather than group them at the end of the report.  Give a sequential number to all figures (Fig. 1, Fig. 2, Fig. 3, etc.)  Add a brief, informative caption to the figures. Sections of the Report The Report should contain the following sections:  Abstract  Introduction  Your material/Methodology  Application of materials/Execution  Result Discussion/Conclusions  References 1. Abstract (maximum 1/2 page) The abstract must be brief, but it has to tell the reader  What is the goal of the work (e.g. study the influence of w/c ratio on the workability of concrete) etc.  Which type of work has been carried out (e.g. lab experiments etc.)?  What are the results obtained (e.g. increasing the w/c ratio increase the workability of the mix), preferably not more than 2 sentences. 2. Introduction (maximum 2 page)  Depending on the project selected give brief history and theory on that topic.  Discuss general material classification, factors affecting the selection process.  How has the work been done (using the lab test, name your tests) 3 Materials 2-CIVIL 0010-A-Fall 16—CW2-PMM  Give the general plan of the report (e.g. how do you collect your sample and what will you do to discuss these properties). 3. Your material/Methodology (maximum 3 page)  Discuss the properties of the selected material (e.g. for auditorium material used for ceiling, walls etc)  The tests to check the properties.  The results you get and analysis for those results. 4. Application of materials/Execution (maximum 4 page)  Explain how the material will effect in terms of performance.  What was the procedure to perform any test?  Procedure for mix design etc 5. Result Discussion/Conclusions (maximum 1 page) State briefly what are the major achievements of your work? 6. References Use CU Harvard referencing system as per our college rules. 7.
