Topic: Crack model of concrete members reinforced with FRP bars
Financial support: a four-year tuition fee will be covered + Scholarship of around 400 (1st year) -450 (2nd-4th year) EUR/month
Subject description: The supervisor has developed a new concept of crack modelling of reinforced concrete structures. In this PhD project, the cracking model will be extended to concrete members reinforced with composite FRP bars. The activities will include theoretical modelling, numerical analysis and experimental investigation as well as teaching (no more than 15%).
