IBRI Rheocenter is advancing to be an outstanding research facility, mastering state of the art
knowledge within the science of rheology of cement based particle suspensions, including cement
paste, grouts, mortars, repair materials and concrete. In particular our aim is to manage up to
date know-how in special concrete areas, such as high performance concrete (HPC), underwater
concrete (UWC) and fiber reinforced concrete (FRC). Our special emphasis is on mainstream
technology like self-compacting concrete (SCC).
IBRI Rheocenter specializes in problem solving for the cement industry regarding issues related to
sulfate balance, grinding aid, workability loss and in particular compatibility problems between
cement and dispersing admixtures, which is of great concern as numerous new types of
admixtures are nowadays based on steric hindrance instead of elecrostatic stabilization.
IBRI Rheocenter is a center of excellence in cement based materials,
