Durable Infrastructure Materials Modified by self-assembled hollow nanostructured materials

Project description

Nanotechnology for better cement and asphalt

The EU-funded DIMMs project will train a professional researcher to play a leading role in the field of sustainable infrastructure. This multidisciplinary project focuses on self-assembled hollow nanostructured materials to realise the microstructural aligning of cement and asphalt concrete and consequently improve their durability when exposed to an aggressive environment. DIMMs will combine a microstructural analysis to illustrate the underpinning nano-modification mechanisms. It will also develop an integrated model to describe the percolation process of the aggressive agents in cement and asphalt concrete. The project will elucidate the microstructural control of infrastructure materials through nanotechnology.
