New research group to investigate the alkali-silica phenomenon and its effects in concrete structures


The DFG has recently approved a 3-year funding for a national research group FOR-1498/0 beginning January 2012. The objectives of the research group are to investigate the effects of the alkali-silica reaction in concrete structures due to simultaneous cyclic loading and external supply of alkali. The research group comprises of scientists from the Bauhaus University Weimar, the Karlsruher Institute for Technology, the Ruhr University Bochum and the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing. We, at the Institute for Structural Mechanics, as part of this research group, will investigate and develop numerical strategies and models within the Finite Element framework in order to understand and gain further insights into the characteristics and interaction of alkali-transport and alkali-silica induced damage in concrete.
