Project: applicability of precast, prestressed concrete beams in self-compacting concrete with high strength strands

project duration
01-DEC-02 – 30-NOV-03
In the concrete industry, the material self-compacting concrete knows a very fast development. Manufacturers of fresh concrete and of precast concrete elements are checking for which products and applications they can switch from ordinary concrete to self-compacting concrete. In this project, the applicability of self-compacting concrete for the production of precst, prestressed concrete beams is tested. At the same time, the possible use of high strength prestressing strands is investigated.
