I am a PhD research fellow in Civil & Structural Engineering in the program for Technology, University of Agder (UiA). My PhD is part of the partly NFR-funded (Norsk Forskningsråd) research project More Efficient and Environmental friendly Road Construction (MEERC).
Supervisors: Katalin Vertes (UiA), Rein Terje Thorstensen (UiA)
Ultra High Performance (Fiber Reinforced) Concrete (UHP(FR)C) is a relatively new material, with great potential because of high strength and durability, and potentially low environmental impact – if used wisely. The utilization has been delayed mainly because of two factors; high cost because of an oligopolistic market, and lack of design codes.
Presently, development of design codes is emerging in several European countries. However, this is still at early stage, and only France has implemented design codes for UHP(FR)C as a national complement to EC2. It is provisionally little or no harmonization between the national initiatives.
My project is part of a long-time effort at UiA, focusing on making UHP(FR)C available through production from local constituents. Through my project, I focus on two aspects of UHP(FR)C:
Member of the Concrete group at UiA.
Member of the Civil engineering research group at UiA.
Cooperation between Nye Veier and University of Agder with focus areas Industrialization and prefabrication and More environmental friendly road construction.
