PILOTS

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

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

ACID ATTACK

Chiusdino (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 (RMG+EO).
UHDC reduced size floater for off-shore wind turbines in the Mediterranean coast to reach TRL6.

NORTHERN ATLANTIC CL
and LOW TEMPERATURE ATTACK

Galway bay (Ireland)
(BaPreC)
Precast floating pontoons along the British Isles coast. Current design foresees HPC and high covers.

CL INDUCED ATTACK

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

PROJECT NEWS

The MOOC "Durability-based design of advanced cement-based materials in aggressive environments: a holistic approach" has been running since May 11th 2020. Registration is still open!
The COVID-19 crisis has prompted the ReSHEALience consortium to meet online, holding a virtual meeting on the 23th of June 2020.
Watch the video of the landing of the UHDC floating pontoon, made by our partner Banager Precast Ltd, on the West coast of Ireland in the Atlantic sea.

Floating of the pilot 3 of the ReSHEALience project. The TRL7 demonstrator has been set up in Valencia (Spain). Designed by RDC and produced by PREFFOR. Monitoring system (sensors, camera): CSIC, IDM and RDC
RDC and PREFFOR pilot #3
On February 26th and 27th the project meeting was held at Universitat Politècnica of Valencia (Spain) where all partners presenting the work done and future plans. During the meeting attendees had the opportunity to visit the RVM pilot in the UPV laboratory. On the 27th a interesting visit to the RDC and PREFFOR pilot took
