Researchers analyzed the pozzolanic reaction and cementing properties of volcanic ash sourced from the Cumbre Vieja volcano and evaluated the replacement of cement as well as its impact on mortar production.
Writing in Energies, a team of scientists from Poland have collaborated on a paper analyzing the thermal comfort of so-called “smart” building compared to traditional buildings.
Researchers at the University of Oregon will receive more than $16 million in federal funds as part of a major government grant to the Oregon Mass Timber Coalition from the Build Back Better Regional Challenge.
A thermostat that predictively controls the indoor climate and thereby improves energy efficiency and comfort – Empa researchers Felix Bünning and Benjamin Huber came up with this idea while working in Empa's Urban Energy Systems lab.
A new study by The University of South Australia has tested and verified the structural integrity of walls constructed from tyres packed with earth, with the results potentially providing new opportunities for the reuse of end-of-life tyres in the construction industry.
A group of researchers recently published a paper in the journal Additive Manufacturing that demonstrated the changes in the behavior of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) prepared using the three-dimensional (3D) printing technology after elevated temperatures in the context of building safety.
Writing in the journal Construction and Building Materials, a team of scientists from China, the USA, and the UK have proposed a novel approach to creating smart cement.
A group of researchers recently published a paper in the journal Polymers that reviewed the recent developments in radiation-shielding concrete (RSC) in terms of materials used in the concrete and its properties, specifically radiation shielding properties.
Buildings made of porous rock can weather over the years. Now, for the first time, scientists at TU Wien (Vienna) have studied in detail how silicate nanoparticles can help save them.
