Research

  • Durability and structural behaviour of (high strength) fibre reinforced concrete
  • Cracking of concrete structures
  • Behaviour of concrete exposed to chlorides, carbonation, freeze-thaw etc.
  • Imposed deformations and combined loading; impact on structural behaviour and advanced calculation techniques
  • Time-dependent behaviour of (early-age) concrete
  • Various structural aspects: minimum reinforcement, partial prestressing, overall structural behaviourin both serviceability and ultimate limit states
  • Serviceability (e.g. cracking, deformations) and ultimate limit state (strength) of several types of concrete structural elements and concrete structures
  • Static strength and fatigue life of reinforced concrete overlays on steel bridge decks
