Low Clinker High Performance
Cement Composites (HPCC)
Objectives of the Summer School
June 13-15, 2018
The objective is two-fold:
School of Infrastructure
1. The summer course will aim to provide an
Indian Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar opportunity for prospective researchers in the
promising and fast emerging fields of
Jatni, Arugul research areas such as low clinker binders
and HPCC, to learn from leading researchers
Introduction in the field.
2. The workshop is designed to bring together
High Performance Cement Composites (HPCC) are a
active and prospective researchers from
class of new generation construction materials institutions, laboratories and industry from
combining short random fibres and cement-based around India to help create a national
matrix materials. Making such materials with low network for collaboration in order to
clinker binders is the latest in the historical efforts to accelerate the pace of research, development
improve the brittle tendency of cement-based and application of these novel classes of
materials under tensile stress and impart other materials.
