Structural application of green concrete

The need for sustainable construction has prompted researching alternative concrete technologies around the world. In QUT, a project has been developed to investigate structural applications of environmentally friendly (Green) concrete.Project activities can be undertaken by students at various levels, including VRES, final-year undergraduates, and PhD researchers.

Sustainable engineered cementitious composite with recycled textile waste

Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) is an advanced construction material which is characterised by high ductility and energy absorption. ECC can be used to replace normal concrete to control problems related to the brittleness of concrete such as crushing, spalling and bond splitting.This study will explore the feasibility of utilizing recycled textile waste such as polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) fibres as the main source of fibre materials for the ECC concrete.
