John C. Huang, Ph.D., PE
Building materials are an integral part of human civilization. Many naturally occurring substances, such as clay, wood and rocks, have been used to construct buildings, roads and bridges for thousands of years. Due to many technological breakthroughs, the last century saw unprecedented innovation and development in new building materials. Many of these materials were composites of natural and synthetic substances, while others represented new forms of materials. The first part of this webinar series begins with an overview of various building materials used for construction, and then focuses on the history, application and science of concrete, one of the world's most widely used building materials. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
Note to Webinar Attendees:
Our live webinars (web seminars) are considered as "Courses of Learning" (live courses) by the New York State Board for Engineering and Land Surveying and as "Timed & Monitored Courses" by the Ohio State Board for Professional Engineers and Surveyors. Unlike the traditional seminars held in a classroom setting, our webinars deliver live instruction to your home or office. You will be able to interact directly with our instructor during a webinar through audio channel or chat box. However, you must attend the webinar at a scheduled date and time. We will verify your attendance through our online webinar platform. The certificate of completion will not be issued unless you attend the webinar and pass a quiz (all quiz questions will be reviewed during the webinar). Thank you for your cooperation.
