Materials Research and Building Chemistry

Group characteristics

    We are concerned with the experimental assessment of microstructure, chemical, physical, and material properties of both traditional and innovative building materials. We design, develop and test materials with improved functional properties for specific applications in construction industry. Modern composite materials we design with the use of secondary raw materials and renewable resources. Performance, durability and ageing of building materials we study under both natural and controlled conditions, as well as at high temperatures, moisture and salt action. The research team is built-up from civil engineers, materials engineers, and chemists. We collaborate with chemical and building materials departments from Czech Republic, EU, China, and Argentina. We also actively cooperate with practice.
