Public PhD defence of Ali Naqi on "Early Age Characterization of Viscoelastic Properties of Alkali-Activated Binders"

Published on December 15, 2023 Updated on February 2, 2024

The environmental concern of high CO2 emissions in cement production emphasizes the need for less carbon-intensive concrete materials. Alkali-activated materials (AAMs) offer a promising alternative to Portland cement (PC), but assuming similar mechanical behavior requires a detailed investigation due to distinct microstructure differences. Ali NAQI's public defense will focus on exploring the properties of novel AAMs, including workability, failure characteristics, and elastic/viscoelastic behavior.
