Meeting Description

Cement is the key ingredient in concrete—the most-used building material in the world—so every advance in understanding how it behaves presents an opportunity to reduce greenhouse gases, advance construction engineering, and improve quality of life around the globe. Organized by ACerS Cements Division, the 11th Advances in Cement-Based Materials took place as a virtual meeting June 23–25, 2021.

 

Meeting Program

 

Professor R. Douglas Hooton, the NSERC/CAC Industrial Research Chair in Concrete Durability and Sustainability, presented the Della Roy Lecture. Hooton’s research involves finding ways to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with concrete infrastructure. He investigates the use of materials such as supplementary cementitious materials and ground limestone to produce a stronger and more durable concrete product. His research has informed the specification codes associated with the American Concrete Institute, the Canadian Standards Association and ASTM standards.
