AbstractA variety of projects and topics are under investigation within the cement-based materials group. The paper describes some important aspects of the work and then focuses on one project. The group has various tools and instruments to help achieve its goals. These include X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and thermal analysis, they are briefly described. Quantitative phase analysis of cement using XRD using Rietveld analysis techniques will be discussed with emphasis on determination of amorphous content. The discussion concludes with suggestions for joint Taiwan-Canadian research projects, including the fire performance of high strength concrete and blended cements for climate change.
