Thesis Topic/Title
Behaviour of Confined Geopolymer Concrete Under Cyclic Loadings

Description

With increased attention on environmental concerns such as global warming, sustainable development and recycling, alternatives for conventional concrete such as geopolymer concrete have been researched around the world. There is no doubt that this new green construction material will be used in earthquake prone areas in the future. Structural analysis in a seismic region demands an understanding of the behaviour of geopolymer concrete and confining materials (steel, FRP) subjected to cyclic loadings. This research aims at investigating the behaviour of confined geopolymer concrete under earthquake loadings and proposing a constitutive model for the same. An experimental program will be carried out and analytical process will be used to validate proposed models.
