1. Shrinkage and Related Properties of Alkali-Activated Binders Based on High MgO Blast Furnace Slag
Sammanfattning : Concrete is the second most used material in the world just after water. A drawback is that it is mostly based on Portland cement, which has an extremely high carbon footprint reaching a staggering 900 kg/tonne. The carbon dioxide emissions related to the production of the Portland cement accounts for nearly 8 % of the global total. LÄS MER
2. Early age autogenous deformation and cracking of cementitious materials – Implications on strengthening of concrete
Sammanfattning : .... LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Concrete is a brittle material prone to cracking due to its low tensile strength. Crack repairs are not only expensive and time-consuming but also increase the carbon footprint. Designing a novel concrete material possessing the ability to self-repair cracks would enhance its sustainability. LÄS MER
4. Revalorization of poorly reactive sources by mechanochemical activation : An alternative approach for sustainable cementitious binders
Sammanfattning : The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change made once again clear the urge to take immediate actions to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Among the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Nr. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The importance of studying the behaviour and properties of concrete can be highlighted by considering the fact that concrete is the most used man-made material in the world. The very first step in making concrete is its mix design and deciding the type and amount of constitutes used in the production of concrete which should fulfil the requirements of the final product.
