Keywords Durability of Concrete: Sulfate Attack on Concrete, Research and Development of Environmental Load-reduced Construction Materials
Summary My research interest focuses on concrete, a main player among construction materials. Concrete, which became available for practical use 100 years ago, is an essential infrastructure component. Its durability depends significantly on environment and service conditions. I am currently engaged in research into the durability of concrete caused by sulfate and others. When cement is produced, carbon dioxide is emitted, which accounts for about 5% of the total CO2 emissions in Japan. To reduce the amount of CO2 emissions, another focus of my research is new type of blended cement with less CO2 emissions, but with the same performance as ordinary Portland cement.
