Join ICE East Midlands Graduates and Students Committee and Dr Omar Hamza, a Fellow of the ICE, as they discuss self-healing concrete.
Sustaining infrastructure assets such as bridges, utilities and underground tunnels are essential for economic growth. In the UK, most of the infrastructure is constructed using concrete. Despite its attractive properties, concrete requires regular maintenance to seal the cracks, maintain structural performance and restore durability.
Discover how to reduce the costly maintenance work on sustaining these assets and discover the latest developments carried out in the field with this technique. With examples from the current research work conducted by a multidisciplinary team (microbiology and civil engineering) at the University of Derby. The seminar will benefit researchers and practitioners in materials science and civil engineering
The meeting will finish with the outgoing Chair’s review and the election of the new ICE East Midlands Graduates and Students Committee members as part of the Annual General Meeting.
Volunteers have the opportunity to plan, organise and deliver events, network and gain valuable professional attributes. If you are keen and passionate to succeed as an engineer, meet new people and broaden your knowledge in civil engineering then please don’t hesitate to get in touch about running for a committee role.
