Dr Peter Domone
BSc(Eng), PhD, CEng, MICE, MICT
Peter Domone is a senior lecturer in concrete technology and is the head of the concrete group in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at University College London.
He joined Taylor Woodrow Construction (more recently Taywood Engineering) as a research engineer after undergraduate and graduate studies in civil engineering at UCL. He worked on a variety of industrially related issues, with a focus on the durability of concrete construction for offshore applications. He returned to UCL as a member of academic staff in 1979, initially as a lecturer, and he has seen no good reason to leave.
He has taught and researched on materials, with a strong emphasis on concrete technology. His teaching interests have led to editing the third edition of 'Construction Materialsí, a text aimed primarily at undergraduate and graduate students of civil engineering, published in September 2001. As in the second (1994) edition, Peter also contributed the section on 'Concrete'.
A major research interest has been the behaviour of fresh concrete. This grew out of work on grouts for offshore structures in the 1980s which was extended into high performance concrete - initially high strength and more recently self-compacting. Studies on rheology have included developments to the two-point workability apparatus, which was initially proved and fabricated at Sheffield University.
Work in the developing area of self-compacting concrete have centred on materials selection and mix design. He has served on RILEM and Concrete Society working groups and also participated in an EU funded programme concerned with test methods.
He has published papers on all of the above topics and has also maintained an interest in nondestructive testing of concrete, in particular continuing the earlier work at UCL on ultrasonic pulse velocity testing of concrete.
Peter is a member of the Examinations Committee of the Institute of Concrete Technology, and the editorial board of the Magazine of Concrete Research.
