A small research project to deliver a report answering the following questions about basalt fibre rebar and its use as reinforcement in concrete:
1. Cost per kg? Comparison to steel?
2. Stress-strain curve of basalt rebar.
3. Strength change with temperature.
4. Its Creep and relaxation properties.
5. Fire Test outcomes of any concrete element built with basalt.
