Department Design & Construction S. Grünewald

Steffen Grünewald studied Civil Engineering at Darmstadt, University of Technology (Germany). In 1999, he started as a researcher at the Concrete Structures Group of Delft University of Technology. In 2004, he completed his PhD on self-compacting fibre reinforced concrete and in 2005, a post-doc research on the effect of viscosity agents on self-compacting concrete. For his PhD-thesis, he was awarded in 2007 the ‘fib Diploma to Younger Engineers’ (Winner category 'Research’), the international award that rewards the best PhD-thesis in the field of concrete and concrete structures.

Since 2005, he has been working part-time as an Assistant Professor at the Concrete Structures Group (Section of Structural and Building Engineering) with the research focus of developing and implementing high performance concretes like fibre reinforced concrete, self-compacting concrete and ultra-high strength concrete and integrating material behaviour, production effects and structural behaviour. The supervision of master thesis projects and the support of PhD-students are a part of his function. Steffen Grünewald is also head of the Material and Quality Department of Hurks Beton (located in Veldhoven), a Dutch producer of prefabricated concrete elements.

He is a member of different RILEM- and fib-committees related to the standardisation and the promotion of high performance concrete and convenor of fib Task-group 8.8 ‘Structural Design with Flowable Concrete’.
