Task 1.2: Development of bio-based construction material for sustainable mass housing
Task Leader(s): Dr. Leena Chaurasia, Dr.L.P.Singh
- Micro structural, mineralogical and durability aspect of bio-based (ureolytic and non-ureolytic bacteria based) construction materials
- To develop bio-based construction material for enhanced durability of RC elements in mass housing.
Description of Task
Based on literature review, bio-based (ureolytic and non-ureolytic bacteria) will be characterized for their application in development of concrete. Detailed investigations will be taken up to evaluate the micro-structural, mineralogical and durability of these bio-based construction material and bio-bricks will be developed. The application of these bio-based material in development of bio-based admixtures as self-healing material in building construction will be explored.
- Bio-brick using desert sand
- Bio-based admixture- self-healing material in building construction
