Phase IV: Material & Texture Testing
NSF CREST Center for Aquatic Chemistry and Environment
Florida International University |College of Architecture + The Arts
The aim of this experiment is to develop a more environmentally friendly concrete mix design and minimize the pollution caused by concrete manufacture. As a result, I lowered the cement ratio by replacing volcanic ash and lime powder with cement. I also used Olivine, a naturally mineral that absorbs CO2 from water and lowers its acidity.
