Concrete computational analysis: nanotomography of cement toward green concrete

February 15, 2021

One of the criteria for the optimization of green concrete is an assessment of the micro/nano structure such that less cement will be required in its manufacture.  BIDS Research Affiliate Daniela Ushizima recently co-authored this paper in the Journal of the American Ceramic Society, and the paper proposes data science tools for metrology of nanotomography data of calcium silicate hydrate, which are key particles that contribute to the concrete mechanical behaviour.
