crack rausing A significant proportion of the Structures section research is focused on investigating structural materials and how these behave in both the short and long-term. The traditional materials used in Civil Engineering construction, i.e. concrete and steel (with their variants), are studied in detail. Moreover, the response of modern composite materials also form a significant part of the research activity.

    The focus of concrete durability research is on the understanding of deterioration processes and on developing methods for design and whole life assessment.

List of sub-topics within this research area

Mechanics of concrete materials

  • Long term behaviour of fibre reinforced cementitious materials
  • Creep of concrete at elevated temperature
  • Spalling of concrete in fire
  • Moisture and heat flow in non-uniformly heated concrete
  • Impact and shock resistance of concrete
  • Concrete under multiaxial stresses
  • High performance concrete, self-compacting and lightweight aggregate concretes

Special steels and polymeric composite materials

  • Strength and ductility of high performance steel
  • Structural aspects of stainless steel applications
  • Properties of wire and high strength synthetic fibre ropes and strands
  • Applications of polymeric composite structures under static and dynamic loads

Concrete durability

  • Deterioration processes (e.g. reinforcement corrosion, sulphate attack, alkali-silica reaction & freeze-thaw attack)
  • Effective methods of design, assessment and repair of concrete structures.
