The Faculty of Engineering, University of Kufa, holds a Workshop on High-Performance Concrete

The Department of Civil Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering held a scientific workshop on high-performance concrete under the supervision of Assistant Professor Dr. Ali Abdulhussein Al-Tameemi, during which graduate student Alaa Salman Abbas gave a lecture in which he talked about the concept of high- performance concrete and some of its applications in civil engineering constructions. Although high-performance concrete is manufactured with the same components as regular concrete, it has a much higher qualitative and quantitative performance, making it a new material for use.
The researcher showed the types of aggregates used in this type of concrete and the effect of each type of aggregate on the density of concrete, explaining the operational problems in this type of concrete and the methods of treating it with additives with a comparison contract between heavyweight concrete and regular concrete.
Besides, the researcher indicated that it is necessary to understand the different aspects of high-performance concrete, such as its manufacture. It focused on high-level concrete in terms of development and improvement. In addition, there is the effect of mineral and chemical additives to better improve concrete performance.
