The research is carried out on the design of microstructure and the development of diagnostic methods for advanced cement based composites. The major objective is to identify the relations between the microstructure and physical and mechanical properties of composites, particularly the long term durability in combined aggressive environment. Advanced concepts of smart internal curing, self-healing of cracks, monitoring of cracking and optimization of fibre reinforcement in brittle matrix cement based-composites are being developed. Microscopic methods with digital image analysis are applied for quantitative characterization of  the microstructure. Accelerated methods for testing durability in aggressive environmental conditions are being elaborated, including combined action of variable temperature, humidity, exposure to CO2 or chlorides. Selected soft computing methods, including machine learning, are used to generate rules to predict the durability. Thermal properties during cement hardening are evaluated using a patent-pending test method supported by computer simulation.
