Autonomous cementitious materials formulation for critical infrastructure repair



Howie Joress, Rachel Cook, Austin McDannald, Mark Kozdras, Jason hattrick-simpers, Aron Newman, Scott Jones


Despite the long history of cement and concrete, there are still large gaps in fundamental knowledge of their properties development. The dire need for improved cementitious repair materials, requires a revolution in the way they are formulated and tested. Here we suggest an autonomous platform that could be leveraged to rapidly formulate and test novel cement patch materials.
