Nilüfer Özyurt Zihnioğlu leading new BAP D coded project on: Using macro polypropylene fibers for concrete pavements

Nilüfer Özyurt Zihnioğlu was granted a new BAP D Coded Project. The project will be completed in 1 year. Research assistant Onur Öztürk will be carrying out the experimental work. Within the scope of the study, it is aimed to increase concrete pavement performance by using fibers. First, concrete mixing protocol will be modified to increase the performance obtained from fibers. Then, experimental and numerical studies will be conducted to examine the effects of fibers on the joint performance of concrete pavements.
