Materials for constructed facilities

The Materials for Constructed Facilities (MFCF) Group works on defining, addressing and advancing all aspects and challenges of using engineering materials in built structures and infrastructures. The group operates laboratories with 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 environmentally friendly, and better explain their physical and chemical behavior. Programs related to this research area include Geological Engineering and Construction Engineering and Management.
