Thesis Topic/Title
Behaviour of Seawater-sand Sea Concrete Structures Reinforced with GFRP Bars

Description

Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites bar has gained considerable worldwide interest and growing acceptance in the construction industry as internal reinforcement in concrete structures. The use of FRP bar is particularly attractive for structures that operate in highly aggressive environments near coastlines and in mining infrastructures where corrosion of steel reinforcing bar is a major problem. At the same time, the use of seawater and sea-sand has attracted attention in producing concrete due to material savings and scarcity of potable water. This research aims at investigating the structural performance and durability of concrete structures utilising seawater and sea-sand reinforced with FRP bars and addressing the key issues associated with their application for their widespread acceptance and use.
