Watertight Concrete Structures - Scholarship for student Mohammadreza Hassani - RES14/917

Project Member(s): Vessalas, K., Sirivivatnanon, V.

Funding or Partner Organisation: BG&E Pty Ltd

Start year: 2014

Summary: The aim of the research is to study critical factors affecting watertightness of concrete structures by using materials based data that has been separately acquired in previous parts of this (and related) projects and using these in structural engineering contexts to ascertain likely performance of structures with regards to water penetration, crack management and joint performance.
