Previous research projects focused on pumpable FRC and development of GRC permanent formwork. Likely new projects include:

The use of Glass FRC in thin shell concrete structures
The use of steel fibres in concrete
The use of blended fibres in concrete
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.
