AN OVERVIEW OF THE GROUP

The Composites Research Group (CRG) has is main research focus in two areas: Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) and Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) materials for the structural strengthening and rehabilitation. Since 1996 the CRG is carrying out experimental, analytical and numerical research in FRC and FRP areas. The permanent scientific staff is composed by four members. Several PhD and MSc students, as well as, Post-Doc researchers have done an important contribution for the high quality of the produced scientific research. The researchers can find in the CRG the necessary facilities to develop experimental, numerical and analytical research. Since the creation of the CRG, several experimental testing set ups were proposed, and numerical models for the nonlinear analysis of concrete structures were developed. This patrimony provides to the present and coming researchers the necessary support for assuring the research quality level self-imposed in the CRG. In resulting of the visibility of the carried out research, the industry is inviting the CRG to take part in applied research projects.
