La temática del grupo se centra en el campo de la Edificación y, más concretamente, en los materiales de construcción y en la simulación de procesos fisicoquímicos a partir de modelos matemáticos.
Se abordan cuestiones vinculadas a los materiales tradicionales de construcción y a los nuevos materiales de restauración, a los nuevos materiales con prestaciones específicas, a las técnicas de diagnosis no destructivas aplicadas a la edificación existente, al comportamiento de los materiales al fuego y a la simulación computacional de la propagación del fuego.
El enfoque de la investigación es pluridisciplinar, como consecuencia de la formación de los diferentes investigadores y de sus experiencias previas. La aproximación a las problemáticas tratadas se realiza desde los planteamientos teóricos hasta la experimentación en nuestros laboratorios. Se trata de investigación aplicada.

The insterest of the group is mainly focused on Building Science and, more specifically, on research into building materials and the simulation pf physico-chemical processes from mathematica modeling.
We address problems concerning traditional construction materials, materials for restoration, new materials with specific characteristics, nondestructive diagnostic techniques, fire behavior of material and fire dynamic simulations.
Our approach is clearly multidisciplinary, taking advantage of the different training of the group researchers and their previous experience. Problems are tackled from theoretical perspective right through to experiments in our labs. This is an applied research project.
