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, Cements 2022 takes place July 11-13, 2022, at the University of California, Irvine, USA.

Presentations are 15 minutes in length with 5 minutes for Q&A.

Final Program

Della Roy Lecture

Barbara Lothenbach will present the 2022 Della Roy Lecture titled, “Uptake of ions by C-S-H“. Barbara Lothenbach is group leader of the Cement Chemistry and Thermodynamics Group of the Concrete & Asphalt Laboratory at Empa, the Swiss Federal Institute for Materials Science & Technology. She has graduated from ETH Zürich and now is associate professor at University Berne, Switzerland, and adjunct professor at NTNU, Norway. She plays an active role in the promotion of the use of thermodynamic modelling to predict and understand the composition of hydrated cement, fundamental to develop durable and low CO2-cements.
