Design and Installation of Anchors
Concrete anchors, when used, are typically a critical design component. While often contributing to the stability and robustness of a structure, anchors can be overlooked as a secondary design element. Errors in design and installation can significantly reduce anchor capacity with the potential to result in catastrophic failure. In this half day online seminar we […]

Lunchtime Seminar Series
This Horizon 2020 project aimed to develop (a) an Ultra High Durability Concrete (UHDC) and (b) a Durability Assessment-based Design (DAD) methodology to improve the durability and predict the long-term performance of structures in Extremely Aggressive Exposure (EAE) conditions. The driving principle of this project is that the long-term behaviour of such structures can […]
