Supervisor: Prof Kypros Pilakoutas

Joint Supervisor: Dr Maurizio Guadagnini

The Concrete and Earthquake Engineering Research Group has been working in the field of FRP reinforcement for over 25 years and participated in many large research topics spanning most areas in the field. Research topics include:

Plate bonding of RC Steel and other structures
Wrapping of Columns, Joints and Beams
Strengthening of special structures
Seismic Strengthening

Depending on the project this may be an experimental or analytical project or both.There are strong links with industry, which is normally directly involved in these projects.

This project is NOT FUNDED, although Departmental/University scholarships are available for applicants who can demonstrate strong evidence of research potential.
