Project description

For characterization of geomaterials under different external conditions, the controlling of the surrounding RH and temperature is crucial. Since we actively look into aspects of the frost resistance of geomaterials, a climatic chamber which controls freeze-thaw cycles is needed. This would open up new dimensions for novel research, both within our research team and those of the co-promotors of this proposal.
