Bauxite Residue is a by-product of the aluminium industry which is currently a factor of environmental concern. The increase of Bauxite Residue (BR) utilisation in infrastructure applications could potentially reduce the environmental impacts. However, more detail research is required to understand how BR affects the properties of the concrete, mainly workability, strength and durability. Therefore, the primary aim of this study is to conduct a comprehensive study on performance analysis of Bauxite Residue in concrete in order to develop a strategy for new sustainable concrete which has low carbon footprint and long service life. This can ultimately contribute to a global agenda of net zero by 2050. Therefore, this project has significant impact on REF 2028 and our research outcome will be disseminated through conference proceedings, research seminars and journal articles and also to the organisations dealing with the relevant issues. We are also planning to author at least three high impact journal publications.
Furthermore, the knowledge gain from this research will be included in teaching for both undergraduate and postgraduate students where we are involved as a module leader, course leader and module tutor. Undergraduate and postgraduate students will also get involved in investigation and knowledge sharing as a part of their capstone project/dissertation work. The knowledge gain will also be disseminated as workshops in open day and offer holder day or other outreach activities.
