AQUACULTURE MUSSEL RAFT

UHDC mussel farming raft. Durable substitute of traditional wooden rafts.

  • Measure the evolution of the corrosion in beams with different crack widths
  • Verify experimentally the progression of the cracking compared to the estimated in the design
  • Continuous control of the strain of the beams
  • Verify some of the statements made in the DAD theory
  • Study the self-healing capacity of cracked elements with different dosages (UHPC vs. UHDC)
  • Support the communication and dissemination activities (camera, MOOC…)
  • Analize in the precast plant the bottlenecks with different dosages

A TRL7 540m2 UHDC raft will be floated in Valencia (Spain) with continuous his floating platform will be monitored including a continuous measurement of the strain of the beams, some of them are designed suffer micro-cracking under service to evaluate the level of self-healing reached with different concrete mixtures.
