The Canada Research Chair on Sustainable Multifunctional Construction Materials is pursuing the following objectives:
Claudiane Ouellet-Plamondon is a Professor in the Construction Engineering Department at ÉTS who specializes in formulating and characterizing materials with advanced functions, modelling the behaviour of these materials and assessing their environmental impact.
Her areas of interest include ecomaterials, the robotization of construction, modelling materials in the cold chain, and wood and clay materials for developing countries. She studies the use of materials from the perspective of the circular economy and global limitations. She also oversees research involving scientific assessment of the recovery of industrial waste, including cementitious materials, and capturing certain pollutants.
Formulation and characterization of advanced materials
Modelling of materials
Members working with the Chair have access to advanced equipment to facilitate their research, including the following:
