Abstract:

This report summarizes recent research on cementitious materials in western Europe, based on a perspective gained during a six-month stay at the Centre Scientifique et Technique du Batiment in Grenoble, France. During this period, the author visited sixteen laboratories in seven European countries. Numerous publications, all included in the reference list of this report, were obtained during these visits. Research is grouped into topical areas with a brief description of separate activities at each institution. Emphasis has been placed on those research topics of interest to the Building Materials Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. A list of researchers working on cementitious materials in western Europe is also provided for those readers wishing to obtain further information on specific topics.
