Development of Graphene-enhanced Concrete for Real Life Construction Applications

Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world with an annual consumption of over 10 billion cubic meters. Cement, which is the most carbon intensive constituent in concrete that contributes to about 80% of the total embodied carbon of concrete. Read more

Development of a performance test method to evaluate effectiveness and service life of galvanic anodes used as part of repair systems and cathodic protection in reinforced concrete structures

One of the most challenging durability issues and causes of defects in reinforced concrete infrastructures is the corrosion of steel reinforcement, which leads to rust formation, cracking, spalling, delamination and degradation of structures (Popov, 2015 and Michael et al, 2016). Read more

Advances in Sustainable Structural Materials – An Experimental and Numerical Investigation to Assess the Structural Performance of Timber Concrete Composites

In an age where climate change is at the top of the agenda, engineers have been pushed to find novel techniques of constructing not only for a global population with exponential growth, but in such a manner to ensure sustainably throughout the whole construction process. Read more

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

Long Term Behaviour of Natural Fibre Reinforced Concrete (NFRC)

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

PhD Project: Could in service life concrete carbonation lead to negative emissions?

  Research Group: CDT in Green Industrial Futures
This advert will close once a suitable candidate has been found. Concrete is a fundamental building material essential to economic development and a substantial contributor to greenhouse gas emissions during its production. 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

Recycled carbon fibre-reinforced concrete

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more
