The Cementitious & Bituminous Materials group has a diverse background and research interests.
Specific areas of research emphasis include:
- Behavior and design of reinforced and pre-stressed concrete and masonry structures
- Computational geomechanics, microstructure characterization of materials, transport in porous media
- Highway materials: mechanical properties of asphalt binders and mixtures, pavement performance modeling, advanced characterization of materials
- Sustainability of cementitious materials: pervious concrete, carbon absorption in concrete, environmental management of concrete, use of recycled materials, ceramic cements
