Synthesis of Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC) for Its Applications in Texas

The objective of this project is to identify the applications in which the use of Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC) can be applicable in Texas transportation system. To achieve this goal, the researcher team will conduct seven tasks categorized into three activities: (1) a comprehensive literature review with in-depth meta-analyses, (2) a survey for state, federal, and international agencies, and (3) a cost-benefit analysis considering Texas environment, life-cycle cost, and environmental impact. Based on the collected data and analysis, the recommendations on ECC applications in Texas and considerations in mixture-design, production, and constructions of ECC will be provided.
