Developing a new, multi-disciplinary approach to characterising aggregate sources, including chemical fingerprinting of pyrite-bearing quarry products is crucial for the supply of suitable building materials.
Our building materials research activities are focussed on the following areas:
Development of methods to geochemically fingerprint quarry sources
- Predictive models for aggregate exploration
- Surface Textural Controls of on High PSV Aggregates - Dr Richard Unitt
- Fingerprinting and assessing the reactivity of past and future aggregates - Tadhg Dornan
