First 10 Best Undergraduate Final Project Award
The Ege University, Civil Engineering Department rewards students who demonstrate excellence in the study of a discipline, both through their main courses and through the achievement of an independent research project that results in an undergraduate thesis. Together with my teammate, we produced a light reactive powder concrete using a pumice aggregate with improved compressive strength, bending strength, toughness, fire resistance and durability.
