Development and Implementation of Low-Cost Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECCs) in Rural Roads in the State of Louisiana

Over the recent years, the research team has successfully developed novel low-cost Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) mixtures for future implementation in pavement infrastructure in Louisiana. The mechanical properties of these mixtures have been successfully validated through laboratory testing. The main objective of this study is to facilitate the implementation of the best performing mixture in the field under real world conditions. To achieve this objective, the functional properties (i.e., frictional properties) of this mixture will be adjusted and validated through laboratory testing. Once validated, the final mixture will be applied as an overlay in a rural road in the state of Louisiana in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD). Over the project duration, the field performance of the ECC overlay will be assessed through regular field surveys.
