Prof. Dr. Eng. Agus Maryoto, ST, MT. was born in Grobogan, September 20, 1971. He studied Civil Engineering undergraduate program at Sebelas Maret University since 1991, Civil Engineering Master's program at Diponegoro University, then continued his education with the his education with the S3 program in Civil Engineering Materials at Nagaoka University of Technology in 2010.
Prof. Dr. Eng. Agus Maryoto, S.T., M.T., has research history related to the Effect of the Use of Calcium Stearate on the Physical and Mechanical Properties of Mortar and Concrete, Calcium Stearate Usage as an Additive Material in Reinforced Concrete Structure at Marine Environment to Reduce Corrosion Attack. Corrosion Attack, Calcium Stearate Contribution to Reinforcement Adhesion Stress In Self-Compacting Concrete with Portland Pozzoland Cement Binder and Fly Ash.
In his inauguration as a professor of Concrete Technology, Prof. Dr. Eng. Agus Maryoto, ST, MT, he took the theme of Calcium Stearate to make concrete more water-resistant. Concrete is an artificial rock composed of cement, crushed stone, sand, water and additives. To the naked eye, concrete is a solid and hollow material, but when viewed in microstructure, millions of capillaries are visible. Corrosive materials such as chloride ions and sulfate ions can enter the concrete. When these corrosive ions reach the reinforcing bars, they can cause corrosion. To avoid this, it is necessary to improve the properties of the concrete microstructure by three methods, one of which is the integral waterproofing method. This method is useful to increase the level of water resistance. One of the materials that can be used comes from stearate acids such as calcium stearate, zinc stearate and ammonium stearate. The application of calcium stearate in concrete is expected to increase the service life of civil buildings made of reinforced concrete or pre-stressed concrete.
