ReSHEALience

a Horizon 2020 project to develop Ultra High Durability Concrete UHDC

ReSHEALience has a total duration of 48 months, starting in January 2018, and a budget of 5,557,595.50 €.

1

INCREASE DURABILITY

Increase significantly the durability of concrete to decrease maintenance and reduce consumption of resources.
This innovative and sustainable material is defined as Ultra High Durability Concrete (UHDC).

2

QUANTIFY DURABILITY

Quantify and predict the durability of UHDC structures in different service conditions when subjected to Extremely Aggressive Exposures (EAE).

3

VALIDATE DURABILITY

Validate the capacity of the UHDC and the new developments, through 6 pilots (TRL6-TRL7) covering two strategic sectors where the material is expected to add high value and generate large impacts.

PILOTS

To validate the capacity of the UHDC and the new developments

ACID ATTACK

Larderello (Italy).
Geothermal power plant tower basin (EGP).
Cooling tower fluid collection basins are critical due to the fluid aggressiveness and environmental risks.

ACID ATTACK

Monterotondo (Italy).
Drilling platform Mud collection basin (EGP).
In drilling sites a residue basin is used during the mud recycling. Basins are chemically and mechanically stressed due to frequent cleaning

CL INDUCED ATTACK
MEDITERRANEAN SEA

Valencia coast (Spain).
Offshore wind floater (CMW+EO).
UHDC reduced size floater for off-shore wind turbines in the Mediterranean coast to reach TRL6.

CL INDUCED ATTACK
MEDITERRANEAN SEA

Valencia coast (Spain)
Aquaculture mussel raft (RDC+ IDIFOR)
UHPC mussel farming raft patented. Durable substitute of traditional wooden rafts.

CL INDUCED ATTACK

Malta Public abattoir.
Damaged water tower (UM).
Concrete water tower from 1st half of the XX century with severe degradation.

NORTHERN SEA CL AND
FREEZE INDUCED ATTACK

Irish west coast
(BaPreC)
Precast breakwater elements along the British Isles coast. Current design foresees HPC and high covers.

Latest news

We are happy to announce the first issue of the ReSHEALience newsletter. Its intention is to highlight the main achievements of the project during its first six months.
ReSHEALience meeting in Milano
Last 25 -26 of June, the 2nd Core Management Committee (CMC) and the first Scientific and Technical Board (STB) meeting was held in Milano, organized by the coordinator of ReSHEALience project, the Politecnico di Milano.
The 1st ordinary Core Management Commitee meeting, in conjunction with extraordinary STB of the ReSHEALience project, took place in Valencia (Spain) on March 7th. The meeting was hosted by the Polytechnic University of Valencia specifically by the ICITECH.
