Workshop on Copyright Filing Procedure (2022)
The CMRG conducted a workshop on copyright filing procedure on 11 September 2022. The workshop was conducted in the meeting room of the Construction Research Centre in UTM. A total of six new copyrights were applied by CMRG members during the workshop.
Numerical modeling for crack self-healing concrete by microbial calcium carbonate
The inevitable existence of microcracks in concrete matrix can create interconnected flow paths due to external load, which will then provide easy access to harmful substances, and thus yielding to corrosion of reinforcement. Consequently, this affects the durability...
Properties of porous concrete from waste crushed concrete (recycled aggregate)
The purpose of this study was to develop porous concrete with acceptable permeability and strength using recycled aggregate from waste crushed concrete. The optimum mix proportions were employed to prepare porous concretes using normal and recycled aggregates. Tests...
