Research at Concrete structures
The division is currently active within the following research fields:
The behaviour of large concrete structures subjected to extreme loads is studied through finite element modelling and in situ measurements.
Energy absorbing structures
The energy absorbing capabilities of concrete elements and rock bolts are studied. Load cases of interest are explosions, air blasts and impacts.
Protective concrete structures
The properties of concrete structures for e.g. shelters and barriers are studied through numerical modelling and laboratory testing. Load cases of interest are explosions, air blasts, impacts and weapon loads.
Shotcrete and vibrations
The vibration resistance of young and hardened shotcrete on rock is studied through theoretical and numerical modelling and in situ measurements.
Vibration resistance of young concrete
Early age concrete is vulnerable to vibrations. This research aims at establishing reliable guidelines for use in
Shotcrete material behaviour
The material properties of shotcrete are studied in laboratory and in situ. The properties of sprayed concrete are compared to those for cast concrete.
Concrete material properties
The properties of concrete, cement and aggregates are studied in laboratory. Fibre reinforced concrete are studied with focus on structural performance
