Economical and Crack-Free High Performance Concrete

The aim of the project proposed as part of the RE-CAST effort is to develop a new generation of high-performance concrete (HPC) that has relatively low binder content and low risk of cracking. Such concrete is intended for pavement construction and cast-in-place bridge elements to secure greater service life. Two types of HPC-AR are targeted, as follows: (1) environmentally friendly concrete for pavement construction (Eco-Pave-Crete); (2) environmentally friendly concrete for bridge decks and transportation infrastructure construction (Eco-Bridge-Crete). The Eco-Bridge-Crete will be designed with different workability levels to facilitate construction operations and reduce labor and cost.
