|Advances in Cement-based Materials takes place in the Civil Engineering Building and the Heine Pharmacy Building on campus. Download the Purdue University map for conference and parking details or visit the Schedule. Advances in Cement-based Materials, hosted at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN, will cover topics of interest to the Cements Division and the Center for Advanced Cement-Based Materials. By co-locating with ACBM, the Cements Division will build upon core audience, offer strong student activities for training and to bring in new members. The advantages of this partnership will lead to growth of Cement Division membership and new opportunities for training, mentoring, and collaboration.|

|The half-day tutorial “An Introduction to the Uses of Molecular Dynamics Simulations for Cement-based Materials” will feature Florence Sanchez from Vanderbilt, Alejandro Strachan from Purdue, and Jim Kirkpatrick,
Cements Division Trustee and Dean of the College of Natural Sciences from Michigan State University who will address uses of molecular dynamics simulations for cement-based materials.
|Della Roy Lecture
Jim Kirkpatrick, Cements Division Trustee and Dean of the College of Natural Sciences from Michigan State University will deliver the Della Roy Lecture.His talk is entitled “NMR Spectroscopy in Cement Science.”
Dr. Kirkpatrick’s research focuses on the application of high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and computational molecular modeling in geochemistry, mineralogy and materials chemistry. He received his PhD in Geology from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaignin 1972 and has authored more than 200 research publications.
