Research interests related to the TDC
 
  • Recommendation of test methods to assess durability under combined actions
  • Combined chemical attack (e.g. combination of different acids, combination of sulfate and chlorides, ...)
  • Contribution to workshops and conferences
  • Better estimation of service life design
 
I intend to co-operate primarily in the following group during the initial phase:
□ Group Acontributing to the literature review
x Group Bcontributing to the comparative test
