AUS professors get QNRF grant

Two faculty members from American University of Sharjah (AUS) were recently awarded an $800,000 grant by the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF) through the National Priorities Research Program (NPRP), the flagship funding programme of QNRF. 
The funding is to support their research proposal entitled 'Guidelines for Enhancing the Performance of FRP-strengthened Concrete Beams under Fire and Harsh Environment Exposures'.
The proposal investigates the strength and behaviour of externally strengthened reinforcing concrete (RC) beams with fibre-reinforced polymers (FRP) laminates under such severe exposures. 
Dr Rami Hawileh, associate professor in Civil Engineering, is the Lead Principal Investigator for the research, while Dr Jamal Abdalla, professor in Civil Engineering, is the Principal Investigator.
Both AUS professors are working in partnership with Qatar University as the submitting institution and Michigan State University as the collaborative institution. The project is expected to finish in three years.
