Project

The use of concrete as bio receptive material for artificial reefs implications for marine habitat restoration and coastal protection

Publisher

Supervisor

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Reef restoration and the development of artificial reefs that provide important marine habitats and act as coastal protection offer an interesting engineering prospect in times of global warming, degrading reefs, collapsing fish stocks and rising seawater levels. Here, we focus on:

Evaluation of cement types for their use in underwater reefs, beneficial surface textures and durability of the concretes in combination with the bio-acceptance in comparison to natural stones and ARMS. For example, different concrete surfaces and reef shapes may be compared in the laboratory and field and surveyed for colonized organisms and associated fish abundance and diversity.
