Public PhD defence of Marco Sirotti on "The Drying Shrinkage and Deformation Mechanisms in NaOH-Activated Slag"

Published on November 8, 2023 Updated on February 2, 2024

Alkali-activated materials are a more sustainable alternative to Portland cement in the construction industry, but one of the factors still hindering a widespread adoption is the uncertainties about their volume stability. The public defence of Marco Sirotti will focus on the drying shrinkage of alkali-activated slag, its causes, the factors affecting it, and the consequences it has on durability.
