Vincent Blouin, PhD

Associate Professor of Architecture
Materials Science and Engineering, Clemson University

Vincent Blouin holds a joint appointment in the School of Architecture and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The main goal of his research program is to bring technical aspects of materials science and engineering to architecture in order to increase energy efficiency and sustainability of buildings. His expertise includes experimental characterization of materials and numerical modeling of multi-physics problems (fluid, thermal and mechanical). His current research focuses on developing design guidelines for integrating advanced materials in buildings, such as phase change materials, pervious concrete, metal foams, and electro-chromic glazing. Other activities include studying the ecology of construction materials, monitoring of building performance and energy audit for cost-effective retrofit of existing buildings.
