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).
Quantify and predict the durability of UHDC structures in different service conditions when subjected to Extremely Aggressive Exposures (EAE).
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.
Geothermal power plant tower basin (EGP).
Cooling tower fluid collection basins are critical due to the fluid aggressiveness and environmental risks.
Galway bay (Ireland)
Precast floating pontoons along the British Isles coast. Current design foresees HPC and high covers.
Malta Public abattoir.
Damaged water tower (UM).
Concrete water tower from 1st half of the XX century with severe degradation.
