Recipes for porous building materials

Research output: Book/ReportInaugural speechAcademic

Abstract

Building materials comprise the greatest volume of man-made materials in the world and the material and energy flows involved are enormous. The production of concrete alone is greater than that of all other man-made materials combined. A changing marketplace that emphasizes integral costs and life-time performance (and beyond) creates a stimulus for innovation. Changing regulations and standards that enable performance-based recipes rather than prescriptive-based recipes also stimulate innovation. A scientifically and technically driven design and production methodology is followed to obtain more sustainable, durable and functional materials, products, components and buildings. This lecture will among others elaborate on the role of mineral oxide engineering and particle size engineering for material recipes. Practical examples of recent developments are presented.
