Brief Description of Research Project

The study aims at developing sustainable concrete materials for infrastructure

applications, and sensor technology can be used to improve the performance of

concrete infrastructure. For example, the use of recycled concrete aggregate can

raise concern about shrinkage and volume stability. New sensor technology can

contribute to the acceptance of recycled concrete because it provides capability to

be embedded in concrete pavements and structures and can be monitored using

wireless technology.
