HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Due to the Covid-19 situation, the PhD defence will be carried out via Skype for Business. Please send an email to Linda V. Andersen no later than 17 June 2020 and you will get an invite for the event or a copy of thesis if requested.

SUMMARY OF THE THESIS

Michael S. Jepsen will present his thesis “Ultra-High Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete – Applications and test methods”, which elaborates on the Ultra-High Performance Concrete materials potential to optimize existing advanced structural designs. The presentation provides an introduction to the characteristics of the material composition, its mechanical properties and illustrates how the material can facilitate a significant reduction in the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) for the next generation of renewable energy structures.
