Diffusion and Electrical Properties of Concrete

The research focuses on the diffusion and electrical properties of concrete, more specifically, how accelerated aging would affect such properties and how accurate maturity method is in predicting these properties. Also, the research tests the effect of alkali content on the diffusion and electrical properties of concretes, as to how and to what extent.

Another investigation is the phenomenon of simultaneous diffusion and sorption, which, instead of diffusion alone, is governing lots of the practical situations when concrete structures are exposed to liquids such as sea water.
