Professor António Alberto from Coimbra University visited LTU
Professor António Alberto S. Correia from the University of Coimbra (Portugal) visited the Building Materials and the Soil Mechanics group at LTU.
MATERIALS, an open access journal published by MDPI, will publish a special issue called "High and Ultra-High Performance Concrete for Sustainable Construction". Professor Andrzej Cwirzen from Building materials group at Luleå University of Technology will be a guest editor.
The main goal of the project is to develop a concrete material capable of self-repair. The focus is on the autogeneous self-healing, i.e. the ability of concrete and other cementitious materials due to their specific chemical composition and in addition, under favorable environmental conditions.
