H.J.H. (Jos) Brouwers – Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)

Jos Brouwers is a Full Professor and Chair of Building Materials at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).  The chair Building Materials is devoted to the advancement and diffusion of knowledge concerning sustainable and functional building materials. Current research interests include Sustainable building (materials, energy, water), Granular mix design and concrete/mortar rheology (Self-Compacting Concrete, soil grouts, earth moist concrete, fiber reinforced concrete, oil well cement etc), Microstructure and pore water chemistry of hydrating cement/lime/gypsum and cementitious by-products (slag, fly ash etc.), and their dehydration (e.g. fire response), Treatment of contaminated soils, dredged sediments, industrial waste etc, with the help of air/steam (cleaning) and by mixing with cement/lime/gypsum (immobilization/stabilization), Transport properties and durability of cement/lime/gypsum based materials (such as Cl- and CO2 diffusion/binding), Functional materials: self-cleaning, air-purifying, translucent, thermally buffering, etc. The group also assists with material processability evaluation. This is done with a broad combination of processing and material characterization techniques, using high-end equipment and advanced instrumentation for chemical, analytical, thermal, physical, optical and electrical analysis.
