Materials for Constructed Facilities

materials for constructed facilities researchThe Materials for Constructed Facilities (MFCF) Group works on defining, addressing and advancing all aspects and challenges of utilizing engineering materials in the built structures and infrastructures. The group operates a few laboratories that include a wide range of tools and equipment for advanced characterization of materials including soils, aggregates, asphalts, cement, and polymer composites.  The group aspires to connect science and engineering principles to improve construction materials, enhance their service life, render them more friendly to the environment, and better explain their physical and chemical behavior.
