Structural Behavior of High Strength Concrete Beams Reinforced with Fiber Composite Grids

Grand Challenge Pitch

The purpose of my research is to test the potential benefits of reinforcing concrete beams with Carbon Fiber or Glass Fiber reinforced polymer grids as opposed to traditional steel rebar. The results will be used to determine the advantages of using Carbon or Glass fiber over traditional steel used for structures such as bridges.

I want to preform research in the structural engineering field for the purpose of bridge structures. My research will require partnership with professors and peers and will result in designs for sturdier bridges.

I will complete 3 credits courses in the Honors College. ISEM 101, Sports in American Society, course is an ethics based course that will give me insight into behaviors of future co-workers. The course will help improve my ability to make mature, well thought out, decisions.

I will attend five of the Idaho Entrepreneur’s Speaker presentations and document my experience. I believe this will provide valuable insight into running a business and overcoming many challenges presented in the workplace.

I will attend a mission trip with either my school or a religious group, where I will travel to another country and serve underprivileged people. I want to go on a mission trip to Africa to dig wells, build homes, and work with children, however, I will take any other opportunity I see fitting.

As a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority I participate in many community service activities. I have participated in fundraising to support Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) a program to help abused children through the foster care system.

Grand Challenge Focus Area

Restore and Improve Urban Infrastructure

In 2005, the American Society of Civil Engineers issued a report card, grading various categories of U.S. infrastructure. The average grade was D (Updated to D+ in 2013).
