The NSERC CREATE Sustainable Building Science Program is coming to an end! Many thanks to our funders at NSERC, we have had a wonderful six years! Stay tuned for future developments and new projects. Murray, Margaret and all of the SBSP faculty.
Negar is PhD student in the Department of civil Engineering, structural materials group under the supervision of Prof Nemkumar Banthia.
The production of concrete is not an environmentally friendly process. In order to have sustainable concrete structures, we are looking at the ways of lowering the carbon footprint of concrete by using recycled materials while keeping or enhancing concrete structural properties or developing new green construction materials with low energy cost and high durability.
Developing new low carbon foot print construction materials such as Geopolymers
Concretes containing recycled materials
Innovative repair materials to extend lifespan of infrastructures
Fiber reinforced concrete
Project title: Development of sustainable coatings to prevent concrete corrosion
