The post-doctorate will be involved in developing new knowledge on the reactivity of GGBS. Dissolution tests using chemical solutions simulating environment of reaction at early age will be designed to evaluate the efficiency of the activation routes. Chemical analysis of solutions (ICP-OES, ionic chromatography, pH, …) and isothermal calorimetry experiments will be applied. Characterization of products of reaction will also be done by methods used for microstructure investigations (X-Ray Diffraction, TGA, SEM, RPE, Raman, Synchrotron…). The candidate will collaborate with other entities of the project and will be in charge of administrative staff regarding the project.
