Personal Details
bbb
 Dr Cheah Chee Ban is a distinguished researcher in the field of construction materials with specialization in cementitious and non-cementitious inorganic composites. As at current he has more than 30 research papers published in established international journals such as the journal of Construction and Building Materials, Composite Part B, Resources Conservation and Recycling, American Journal of Applied Sciences etc. He has vast experience in the characterization of calcareous and siliceous mineral binder materials for concrete production. The outcome of his laboratory and in-situ investigation provides essential knowledge to the stakeholders of the concrete manufacturing sector in materials selection and quality assessment. His binder materials characterization specialization covers physical properties assessment, chemical properties examination and material quality monitoring. These aspects of the application of concrete binder are of utmost importance to ensure the quality and longevity of the concrete material in long term service duration.
