RILEM (From the French name Réunion Internationale des Laboratoires et Experts des Matériaux, systèmes de construction et ouvrages; with the English translation International Meeting of Laboratories and Experts of Materials, Construction Systems and Structures) is the peak scientific body for construction materials research.

RILEM's mission is to advance scientific knowledge related to construction materials, systems and structures and to encourage transfer and application of this knowledge world-wide.

Many of our researchers are active members of RILEM and its Technical Committees. We have provided a brief description of the main activities of the RILEM Technical Committees we are primarily involved with below - click the links to find out more.

247-DTA: Durability testing of alkali-activated materials

The primary aim of this TC is to provide recommendations regarding appropriate test methodologies and protocols for the analysis of the durability of alkali-activated binders, mortars and concretes

CCC: Carbonation of concrete with supplementary cementitious materials

Supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) have a long history of being used as partial replacement of Portland cement in concrete. The primary aim of this TC is to assess carbonation of Portland cement blended with SCMs, as well as alkali-activated materials.

267-TRM: Tests for reactivity of supplementary cementitious materials

The primary aim of this TC is to develop and critically assess a range of methods to assess the potential reactivity of a material for use as an SCM.
