Dr. Kamal H. Khayat, Vernon and Maralee Jones Professor of Civil Engineering at Missouri S&T, was recently honored for his lifetime achievements in the field of self-consolidating concrete.
The second International RILEM Conference on Rheology and Processing of Construction Materials (RheoCon2) was held in conjunction with the ninth International RILEM Symposium on Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC9) in Dresden, Germany Sept. 8-11. RILEM is the International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures, and Khayat is one of only 64 named Fellows in the RILEM organization.
Khayat presented the opening keynote lecture titled “Fiber-reinforced SCC – Recent Advances and Perspectives.” Khayat specializes in the development of high-performance cement-based materials for structural applications and rehabilitation, particularly focusing on SCC and high-performance concrete behavior. His work in the area of SCC, starting in 1991, has contributed to its acceptance worldwide.
Khayat also delivered a keynote presentation at the 15th International Congress on the Chemistry of Cement in September at Prague, the Czech Republic. Khayat’s keynote presentation was titled “Rheological Properties of Ultra-High-Performance Concrete — An Overview.” It was published in a special issue of the Cement and Concrete Research Journal.
