Long-term evaluation of building envelope materials
The building envelope is arguably the most important aspect of a building besides its structure. It is the first line of defense against the environment and maintains comfortable humidity and air conditions. However, in ...
Use of manufactured sands for concrete paving
Manufactured fine aggregates are a product created when rocks are crushed using a mechanical crusher. With the depletion of sources of natural sands, the usage of manufactured fine aggregates has increased. Manufactured ...
Durability testing of rapid, cement-based repair materials for transportation structures
For repairing concrete transportation infrastructure, such as pavements and bridges, much importance is placed on early-age strength gain as this has a major impact on scheduling and opening to traffic. However, the long-term ...
Durability of calcium-aluminate based binders for rapid repair applications
Within the last few decades, the amount of vehicle miles traveled within the US has increased approximately 40% with the construction of new roads only increasing 4% during this same time period. This dramatic increase ...
Durability and waterproofing investigations of the building envelope
Durability of the building envelope is an important characteristic to monitor and test on a structure to ensure it does not fail prematurely from water penetration. Due to the building envelop failures existing today, the ...
Durability of building envelope materials
This thesis is part of a series of documents that presents some research on different topics that are being conducted at The Durability Lab of The University of Texas consisting of groundbreaking research focused on the ...
