Chairman of Civil Engineering

Concrete Lab

The Concrete Lab of the Civil Engineering Department is used by Professor Jameel Ahmad and graduate and undergraduate civil engineering students for research on Self-Compacting Concretes (SCC) with special applications in blast-resisting wall systems. SCC are produced by adding super-plasticizers to the concrete mix. The use of super-plasticizers produces concretes with low or vey low water/cement ratios, leading to a significant ncrease in the compressive strengths of SCC.
