Research Thesis Topic
Use of Advanced Materials By Small and Medium Enterprises (Smes)
This topic will investigate and evaluate the extent to which advanced materials are used by the SME engineering sector. Such materials have to potential to contribute significantly to sustainable development and revolutionise activities like building and infrastructure construction. The research will enable improved understanding of how these materials are used or not used by industry, and evaluate those factors that aid and hinder their adoption. Such factors include perceptions by industry about these materials, experience with their use, availability of relevant standards and codes, design and construction methods and practices, risk factors, and how and where they might best be used in engineering projects.
