Use of Fungi as a Means of Producing Concrete-Like Construction Materials

Concrete is one of the World’s most ubiquitous materials. It has achieved this through its versatility, durability and low cost. However, the manufacture of a key ingredient - Portland cement – contributes 4% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions. Read more

Use of Recovered Toner Powder to Enhance Durability, Engineering and Sustainability Performance of Structural Concrete Elements

The working life of reinforced/prestressed concrete elements is often determined by serviceability limit state which is governed by the movement of harmful moisture into the structure and propagating/initiating corrosion of steel reinforcement. Read more

Development and performance improvement of structural concrete using reused aggregate

  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
Concrete is one of the most used construction materials in construction practice overall world. Aggregate is the main constituent material for concrete and it affects the concrete properties significantly. Read more

Self Sensing reinforced concrete structural elements

  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
Self-sensing concrete has recently attracted major research attention and significant commercial interests, aiming to produce smart infrastructures with elegantly integrated health monitoring abilities. Read more

Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Stay In Place (SIP) formwork for structural concrete elements

  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
The concept of using FRP composites for structurally integrated stay-in-place (SIP) formwork for structural concrete elements maximizes the advantages of both FRP and concrete; not only can the high strength of FRP be utilized effectively, but also FRP profiles can serve as permanent formwork. Read more

3D-printable fibre-reinforced low-carbon concrete for additive construction

3D concrete printing (3DCP) can allow freeform construction without the use of expensive formwork, but the current progress is limited by the range of printable concretes and reinforcing methods. Read more

The Use of Shape Memory Alloys to Enhance the Behaviour of Framed Concrete Structures

The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering has seen 100% of its research impact rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, underlining the wide-ranging positive impacts that our research has on the world (REF, 2021). Read more

PhD position in TransFIRe: Dematerialisation of cement and concrete

  Research Group: School of Civil Engineering
Achieving a sustainable circular economy will require that we “dematerialise” many systems of provision. We must drastically reduce the amount of physical material that we currently use to provide goods and services. Read more

Development of low-cost ultra-high performance low-carbon concrete

According to the Portland Cement Association (PCA), ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) is ‘‘a high-strength, ductile material formulated by combining Portland cement, silica fume, quartz flour, fine silica sand, high range water reducer, water, and steel or organic fibres. Read more

Parameters Affecting the Stiffness and Ductility of Reinforced Concrete joints under Cycling Loading

The School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering has seen 100% of its research impact rated as ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, underlining the wide-ranging positive impacts that our research has on the world (REF, 2021). Read more

Geopolymer reinforced concrete structural elements

  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
Geopolymers is an alkali-activated amorphous aluminosilicious cementitious material exhibiting the ideal properties of rock-forming minerals. Read more
