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

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

Effective infrastructure measures to improve pedestrian safety at unsignalised crossings

The safety of pedestrians is a critical area for improvement in international programmes. The pedestrian star ratings used by iRAP provide an initial benchmark of safety performance and priority improvements that are cost effective. Read more

Strain-hardening geopolymer composites for sustainable and durable construction

Fiber-reinforced strain-hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) are a unique class of fiber-reinforced concrete exhibiting a pseudo strain-hardening behavior in tension after first cracking, accompanied by multiple cracking up to relatively high strain levels. 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

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

Dispersion strengthened alloys for automotive engineering

Brunel Centre for Advanced Solidification Technology (BCAST). PhD Studentship . Applications are invited for a PhD studentship for the project “Dispersion strengthened alloys for automotive engineering”. Read more

Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis

  Research Group: Water Engineering and Natural Environment
The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK. Read more

Techno‐Economic Impact of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
The reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases is agreed in November 2016 in the Paris international agreement (IEA Dec. 2016). The agreement is expected to create a transformative change in the energy sector to combat climate change. 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

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

Multi-sensing deterioration monitoring of railway bridges

Rail infrastructure deteriorates with time due to material fatigue, overloading, ground movement and environmental effects. This might affect the serviceability and structural integrity of rail assets, such as bridges, causing major socio-economic disruptions and occasionally life loss. Read more
