Concrete Technology: basic principles with 17 on-line Lectures corresponding to the first 16 Chapters and Chapter XXV of the second edition book “The New Concrete” , 421 pages, authored by Mario Collepardi with attached a video on the "Deterioration of Concrete": the price of this first on-line course is 350 € + VAT.

There is an extra-cost of 125 € + VAT for people following the on-line course from Countries out of the Europe Community due to the longer distance transportation of the book and, more importantly, for the customs duty payment in Italy. However, people following the on-line course from China might adopt the Chinese version of the book “The New Concrete” published by the “ China Building Material Industry Press”.
