Summary of the experiences and competences of Gregor
Dr Gregor J. G. Gluth is a senior researcher at the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM), Berlin. His research centres around sustainable cements, special cementitious materials with unique engineering properties, and concrete durability and degradation mechanisms. In the area of durability, a major part of his research was and is concerned with microbially induced corrosion (MIC) of cementitious materials, while it also also includes studies of the corrosion of steel reinforcement in concrete. The cements studied include alkali-activated materials (geopolymers), calcium aluminate cement as well as blended cements with calcined clays, non-ferrous slags, and other supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs). To elucidate their structure, properties and behaviour, he uses X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) spectroscopy, Raman microscopy, infrared spectroscopy, thermal analysis as well as results from solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Dr Gluth has been member of a number of technical committees of the International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM) and the European Federation of Corrosion (EFC), actively trying to transfer recent knowledge from research to the broader engineering community.
