O mém projektu

The project is focused on the study of the environmental impact on the properties of building materials. Changes in the internal structure, compressive strength and fracture toughness of selected building materials will be examined. Utilization and further improvement of recently developed methods for time-lapse X-Ray computed tomography during mechanical loading are assumed. Correlation with standard mechanical testing, specifically compression and three-point bending tests, will be provided.
