Cementitious & Bituminous Materials

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 cement
