Dr. K. van Breugel
Prof.dr.ir. K. van Breugel is full professor at the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University of Technology. He became employed at the university in the division of Concrete Structures in 1979. In the period 1980 – 1990 he was involved in research projects related to bulk storage of hazardous materials, like LNG, LPG and concrete protective structures. He got his PhD in Delft in 1991 with his research on numerical simulation of the microstructure of cement-based materials.
In 1999 dr. van Breugel became full professor on Concrete Modelling and Materials Behaviour in the division of Concrete Structures. In 2002 he was appointed director of the Micromechanical Laboratory of the faculty Civil Engineering and Geosciences. From 2003 until 2007 he was Director of Study of the faculty Civil Engineering and Geosciences. In 2008 he was appointed head of the division of Materials and Environment.
Professor van Breugel is member of several international organisations ACI, RILEM, IABSE, IALCCE and fib. He is (co-)author of about 600 conference and journal papers and editor of several books, reports and conference proceedings. In 2013 the Ageing Centre for Materials and Structures was launched under his supervision.
