Bardia’s research framework is the current infrastructure crisis and the ensuing need to develop effective concrete repairs as well as more reliable methods for repair assessment. As poor repair durability remains a major challenge in North America and beyond, his thesis will provide innovative solutions to enhance long-term bond between concrete substrates and repairs, by employing novel admixtures, fiber reinforcement, surface treatments, and nanotechnologies.
