Development of new construction materials

This research area is related to the study of new and existing construction materials: cement-concrete composites, geopolymer concrete, long-term material properties (creep deformation under different stress and strain conditions), shrinkage deformation, self-healing cement-based composites and concrete durability (frost resistance, alkali-silicate reactivity). The research uses state-of-the-art equipment: 3D Printer for the production of specimen moulds, Digital image correlation methodology.
