1. General information:

Project title: Study for improving the quality of the practice-experimental training at Construction Material Laboratory, Department of Civil Engineering, Vinh University.  

Code number: T2016 - 56

Coordinator: Nguyen Tien Hong


Current employer: Department of Civil Engineering - Vinh University

Implementing institution: Vinh University

Funding institution: Vinh University

Duration: From January 2016 to December 2016

2. Objective(s):

Improving the training quality of the experimental of the "Construction Materials" modul at Faculty of Construction, Vinh University.

3. Creativeness and Innovativeness:

For students of the construction building industry, the accumulation of practical knowledge is quite important during the learning process. Construction material laboratory practical will help future engineers in improving their ability to evaluate the choices of building materials for each project which meet the technical and economical requirements of the project.

In the Construction Material Laboratory of Faculty of Construction of Vinh University, there are several equipments which has not been exploited which affects the quality of the student training and research. Meanwhile the experiments in the Construction Materials Modul are incompleted and thus do not meet the requirement of the world of works. An investigating on the addition of the experiments  in order to obtain a maximum exploitation of the testing equipments is neccessary. The research aims to improve the quality of the Construction Materials Modul in training engineers in Vinh University.   

4. Research results:

- Assessing the situation of the practical training experiments in the Construction Materials Laboratory of Faculty of Construction in Vinh University.

- The addition experiments.

-             The economical - technical consumption for additional experiments.

5. Products:

- Detailed Outline of Construction Materials Modul, both in Vietnamese and English.

- Four additional experiments.

-             The economical - technical consumption for additional experiments.

- 01 articles published in a scientific journal.

6. Effects, transfer alternatives of research results and applicability:

- Several equipments has been taking into use for practical trainings in Construction Materials Laboratory, improve the laboratory experimental training and also the quality of education. 

- Research results are transfered to the Faculty of Construction to serve the Construction Materials practical guidance for the students.

- Research results are applied to the practical guidance in the laboratory in the next years.
