Kawashima has been promoted to Associate Professor (w/o tenure but on tenure track) in the Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics Department at Columbia University.
A manuscript has been accepted for publication by Cement and Concrete Composites entitled, “Distinguishing dynamic and static yield stress of fresh cement mortars through thixotropy,” with Ye Qian as first author.
Kawashima gave an invited talk on Oct 25, 2017 entitled, “Tailoring the rheological properties of cement-based systems for 3D concrete printing” in the Center for Sustainable Engineering of Geological and Infrastructure Materials (SEGIM) Seminar Series in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Northwestern University.
Siwei Ma has received the prestigious Student Innovation Fellowship from the Thornton Tomasetti Foundation. His project will be on characterizing and developing systems suitable for 3D concrete printing. Congratulations Siwei!
Kawashima gave a talk entitled,“Tailoring the Rheological Properties of Cement-based Systems for 3D Concrete Printing,” as part of the Construction Materials Seminar Series in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Kawashima gave a talk to the Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering at Caltech on Mar 9, 2017.
Kawashima received the National Science Foundation CAREER award. The project is entitled, “CAREER: Tailoring Rheological Behavior and Interlayer Properties of 3-D Printing Concrete,” set to start in June 1, 2017.
Ye successfully defended his PhD dissertation entitled, “Structural Rebuilding and Shear Migration in Cementitious Materials in Consideration of Thixotropy,” on Oct 21, 2016. His PhD committee consisted of Professor Huiming Yin (Columbia University CEEM), Professor Hoe Ling (Columbia University CEEM), Dr. Nicolas Roussel (IFSTTAR, France), and Dr. Nathan Tregger (GCP Applied Technologies). Thank you to all of the committee members for their insightful questions and comments. And congratulations Dr. Ye Qian!
