Researchers Dr Tao Yu;

Brief description The infrastructure in Australia and beyond has long suffered from deterioration due to corrosion of steel reinforcement/sections. This project will address this problem by investigating a new form of hybrid columns, namely fibre reinforced polymer confined concrete-encased steel composite columns. The idea of combining a fibre reinforced polymer-confined concrete and a steel section not only makes the column a durable and ductile alternative to steel/concrete columns, but also makes them an efficient method for retrofitting or strengthening deteriorated steel columns. This project will study the structural behaviour of fibre reinforced polymer confined concrete-encased steel composite columns, and develop design methods to pave the way towards their wide practical applications.
