We are currently collaborating in research with two Canadian Universities: Queen’s University and Waterloo. This collaboration considers the behavior of various Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymers (GFRP) reinforcing materials in fire. We are also highly active on the American Society for Civil Engineers (ASCE) and Canadian Society for Civil Engineers (CSCE) in fire protection. Acting as task group leader for acceptance criterion in the US and chair of the Canadian committee, we are actively developing alternative solutions in North America for all construction types. We are also developing sustainable concrete technologies.
Our team performs a number of Engineering Education based research. In particular we look at Inclusivity and Diversity in engineering.
