Personal profile

Research areas

Henrik Brøner Jørgensen is Associate Professor in Structural Concrete at SDU Civil and Architectural Engineering. He received his MSc and PhD degree from the University of Southern Denmark in 2011 and 2014, respectively.

One of his main research interests is the load-carrying capacity of concrete structures, with a special focus on developing models that can be used for design in practice. The models are established on the basis of experimental studies and formulated on the basis of the theory of plasticity. The following are examples of such projects. Henrik developed:

1)      A mechanical model for calculation of the combined bending and tensile capacity of so-called U-bar loop connections. These connections are used to ensure structural continuity between precast deck slabs of steel-concrete composite bridges. The model is now implemented in the final draft for the new European Standard for Concrete Structures, Eurocode 2. Furthermore, the model has already formed the basis for design of bridge deck connections in practice.

2)      A mechanical model for calculation of the shear capacity of looped wire rope connections between precast concrete wall elements. The model is simplified and formulated in a Design Bulletin that forms the basis for design of such connections in Denmark.

His research group is active in the following domains of concrete structures: behaviour and design methods for structural concrete, design of innovative structures, shear in structural concrete, shear in prestressed beams, design and strength of connections, serviceability design of connections, strengthening of existing structures and residual load-bearing capacity of damaged existing structures.
