Development and optimisation of novel pultruded Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) cellular–concrete hybrid beam Non-funded

Centre for the Built and Natural Environment

This project aims to investigate the structural performance/behaviour of new pultruded FRP cellular ‘PolyCell’ – concrete hybrid beams. The study will focus on developing a shear connection using pultruded FRP cellular beam profiles with lightweight concrete.


Electrical interactions between Cathodic Protection systems and surface- bonded CFRP composites in RC structures Non-funded

Centre for the Built and Natural Environment | Engineering, Environment and Computing

This project will seek to investigate the electrical and electrochemical interaction between carbon fibre composite strengthening system and CP system and develop suitable method(s) to mitigate the potential risk of shortening the service life of CFRP composite. The proposed research motives can result in development of specialist resin and/or isolating system to be used in situations where the coupled application of CP system and CFRP composites is needed.
