3D multi-scale structural characterization and long-term performance related to efflorescence Ghent University
The goal of this research is to create a bridge between lime and cement mortars, and study their structure and performance. Mortar mixtures will be characterized, focusing on the efflorescence effect. For the study of the efflorescence, contamination and further accelerated aging of the mortars is done. Physical and chemical characterization is carried out, together with micro-CT for 3D analysis.

Extreme energy transformations and transfers in astrophysical and laboraasmas KU Leuven
The transport and conversion of vast amounts of energies in different forms is the key aspect of almost all major events in laboratory plasma experiments, in our solar system and in more remote astrophysical systems. Nevertheless, energy transfer and transformation mechanisms in plasmas are still riddled with many fundamental challenges due to their intrinsic multi-scale and multi-faceted nature. Multi-scale aspects come in when trying to ...
Understanding the Behaviour of Building Integrated Photovoltaic Facades. Numerical and Experimental Analysis KU Leuven
Climate research has shown that anthropogenic CO2 emissions are the primary cause of global warming. The higher global temperatures associated with global warming are disrupting local climates and ecosystems in a catastrophic manner. In order to limit global warming, a deep transformation of all human systems is imperative. Among others, an unprecedented increase in the use of renewable energy sources is necessary to achieve a climate-neutral ...
TRACESpace: Multiphysics challenges in the Study of the Sun-Earth Connection KU Leuven
Creep of synthetic fibre reinforced concrete. KU Leuven
As the most widely used construction material, concrete is constantly in development with continuous advances made in the fields of material science, concrete technology and reinforcement systems. The development of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) has significantly impacted all three fields. Since the first trials with FRC in the 1960s, the material has undergone significant improvements in both the quality of the materials as well as the ...
