Experimental investigation into the strength of concrete. One major issue with concrete structures is determining their strength after damage has occurred. In this research we are particularly interested in the concretes ability to resist impacts after it has been damaged by various methods. In the laboratory we use microwave radiation to induce the damage, and characterise this against mechanically induced damage.
