Mr. A. Brent Rollins

Brent Rollins, CECS Civil Engineering Research Laboratory Director, is an invited speaker at the upcoming American Society of Civil Engineers PORTS ’16 Conference in New Orleans.  The focus of his paper and presentation is the utilization of colloidal nano-silica as treatment for concrete in salt water ports. At this premiere port engineering conference, Mr. Rollins will share information regarding his research as applied to the Port of Marseille, France. At that port, in 2014 a  70 meter long boat dock was placed with the goal of testing low shrinkage and less permeable concrete treated with colloidal nano-silica as a preamble to renovation of the 6 km sea wall that protects the harbor.
