Title
Geopolymer concrete for thin-walled structures in marine environment
Description
This project aims to develop ultra-high performance geopolymer concrete thin-walled structures for the critical infrastructure in the marine environment. It is expected that this project will develop novel design rules for ultrahigh performance geopolymer concrete thin-walled structures based on experimental testing, numerical modelling, validation, and simulation. This project will increase the durability of coastal infrastructures and significantly reduce the loss of their capacities due to corrosion-induced damage. The development of ultra-high performance geopolymer concrete thin-walled structures is a significant engineering discovery, which is in line with the Australian government 2030 vision for sustainable development.
  • This project is suitable for PhD students who are interested in structural engineering, mechanics of materials and offshore/coastal engineering.
