Price: EUR 40/ per person incl. VAT

The first day we will deal with the main and general concepts supporting the Alkaline Activation of materials. It means: Chemistry of alkaline cements; mechanisms of reactions; development of microstructure and development of mechanical strengths in pastes, mortars and concretes; rheological considerations; durable characteristics; etc.
