Project 1.  Creep and Shrinkage of Geoploymer Concrete

Supervisor:             Dr Liza O'Moore l.omoore@uq.edu.au 

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the creep and shrinkage of geopolymer concrete for  TM. This study will aim to determine the creep and shrinkage of the concrete properties and compare with a Portland cement concrete bad various theoretical model codes.

This study will provide TMR with an increased understanding surrounding the time-dependent  behaviour of geopolymer concrete, and allow TMR as the governing authority to implement appropriate measures for beams manufactured with geopolymer concrete.

Project Duration  - The project will run 1/2019-2/2019 and is only available as a yearlong thesis. A group of 2 or 3 students is preferred. (CIVL4580)
