In the recent decades, river sand has been used to replace sea-in order to solve the resource shortages in many countries.

Impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) is an efficient method to prevent corrosion of re-bars, while bonding carbon fibre mesh to the RC structures can help improve the loading capacity of the deteriorated structures.

The C-FRCM composite, comprised of carbon fabric mesh and inorganic cementitious matrix, is both the anodic material for ICCP and the structural strengthening material.
