Utilising sensors for predicting the residual strength of corroded reinforced concrete beams


Materials and Engineering Research Institute

About the Project

Research Area: The project is structural engineering based and will investigate the influence of corrosion on reinforced concrete beams using sensors to automatically detect differences in the ability of the structural member to carry its design load. It will involve casting typical reinforced concrete beams in the laboratory, subjecting them to corrosion using an accelerated method and testing under static and dynamic load. Specially selected sensors will be attached to the members and their output will be related to changes in residual strength.
