OSPGEN 15: Volcanoes, Roman Concrete and Archaeology

The purpose of this multidisciplinary course is to expose students to the interactions between the natural hazards in Southern Italy and the engineering of more durable and sustainable materials from the engineering of the Roman maritime concrete to Martian sulfur concrete. The seminar will be a journey inside volcanoes and a walking tour through the archaeological sites of Greek and Roman age. Students will learn about natural disasters, properties of rocks and geomaterials used for construction, and how these materials have been used to build many of the long-lasting, ancient monuments and cities and will be likely used for planetary shelters and habitats of tomorrow.
