Greener and Better Concrete With Supplementary Materials
December 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The live presentation of this event has already taken place.

Supplementary materials including mineral admixtures have been routinely used in the concrete industry as supplementary or partial replacing materials to cement. The use of such materials in concrete has both economic and environmental benefits. Not only is this due to the use of by-products that would otherwise be waste, but also the energy consumption and CO2 emissions associated with the production of concrete can be reduced if part of the cement in concrete can be replaced by these materials. These would again have impacts on many social aspects.
This webinar will discuss the properties and utilization of different supplementary materials in construction, the impact of adding these materials on the properties of concrete, and the resultant economic and environmental impacts.
Key takeaways from this webinar:
- Supplementary materials help reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission in the concrete industry.
- Supplementary materials are beneficial to concrete performance.
- Most supplementary materials are industrial by-products, and there are economic and environmental advantages by using these materials.
Presenter: Dr. Shasha Wang, EIT Lecturer.
Dr. Shasha Wang is an on-campus lecturer in civil engineering at the Engineering Institute of Technology, Melbourne Campus. She obtained her PhD degree in civil engineering (structural engineering) from the National University of Singapore. She previously worked as a sessional lecturer at Victoria University and a research fellow at the National University of Singapore.
Dr. Wang is a passionate lecturer and has been teaching a number of engineering courses in both Australia and Singapore. She is a keen practitioner of a student-centered, industry-oriented approach to engineering teaching. Apart from teaching, she is an active researcher as well. Her primary research activities are in cement-based materials and concrete structures under impact loading, where she has regularly published peer-reviewed articles in premium journals (such as the International Journal of Impact Engineering, Magazine of Concrete Research, Construction and Building Materials, and Cement and Concrete Composites). Her research interests also include high-performance concrete (HPC), ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC), green concrete, low-carbon concrete structures, and the repair and rehabilitation of civil structures and infrastructures.
