DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE CONCRETE COMPOSITES BY UPSCALING MATERIAL PROPERTIES
Grant number: DP180100643 | Funding period: 2018 - 2022
This project aims to develop an upscaling process to correlate micro-nano properties of engineering materials to their comprehensive physicochemical properties based on systematic mechanical and statistical analysis approaches and nanoindentation technology. The process will enable assessing material mechanical and viscoelastic properties at a microscale level thus will generate a new knowledge in structural engineering discipline including health monitoring, assessment of existing structures, historical buildings, and strengthening and repairing materials in structures. The outcomes are a multiscale link model for upscaling material properties and a development of innovative reinforced conc..View full description
