Prof Billy Boshoff

 

Prof Billy Boshoff is a professor in civil engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Built Environment and Information Technology. His field of research is construction materials, with a particular focus on how concrete relates to structural behaviour. He is a senior member of the International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM), twice president of the Concrete Society of Southern Africa and a registered professional engineer at the Engineering Council of Southern Africa.

He has published over 40 journal articles, delivered 65 peer-reviewed conference papers, and has organised two international conferences in his field. He was recently involved in the leadership of a RILEM technical committee on using superabsorbent polymers in concrete to prevent plastic shrinkage cracking.

His focus has been on fibre reinforced concrete, the time-dependant behaviour of concrete and fresh concrete behaviour. His more recent work is on "Internet of Concrete", where concrete is monitored with special sensors, which can warn construction contractors in time about the issues and problems that occur during construction and recommend possible remedies that should be implemented immediately.
