Recent Development of Cement-Based Materials

by Spencer T. Wu,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Materials


Development of advanced techniques has enhanced the capability of more accurate characterization of engineering materials at both the microscopic and macroscopic levels. Through better understanding of material structures, deformation failure mechanisms, improved material systems have been developed. This paper presents recent development of cement-based materials and the related research findings. Problems related to civil engineering applications of the newly developed materials are also discussed.
