Recent activities and achievements
Project title: Shear resistance mechanisms of a range of new hybrid reinforcement FRC
Objectives: This project will investigate the shear resistance mechanisms of a range of new hybrid reinforcement FRC using both experiments and numerical FEA The objective will be develop predictive models that can be used for design purposes
Tasks and methodology: Shear transfer behaviour of SFRC by conducting “Z” push-off shear test and also simulating the model by ABAQUS.
