Research work in the School of Civil and Building Engineering wins award
Research work in the School of Civil and Building Engineering has won an award from the Institution of Civil Engineers.
The project, Corrosion Management and Repair of Reinforced Concrete Structures, was Highly Commended in the Studies & Research category at the Institution of Civil Engineers East Midlands Merit Awards (EMMAs).
The research involved Dr Chris Goodier and Prof Simon Austin from Loughborough, Dr Christian Christodoulou and Mr John Webb from AECOM Technology Corporation, and Gareth Glass from Concrete Preservation Technologies, and was conducted as part of the School’s Centre for Innovative and Collaborative Construction Engineering (CICE) Engineering Doctorate programme.
The research project on the Corrosion Management and Repair of Reinforced Concrete Structures provided for the first time rigorous scientific evidence on the long-term performance of the most popular corrosion management techniques for structures in the UK. Uniquely, it investigated and examined full-scale bridge structures, and brought industry-wide collaboration with major asset owners such as the Highways Agency.
