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.
