Project: Characterisation and modelling of high volume fly ash concrete - physico-chemical properties, microstructure, durability and sustainability

project duration
01-JAN-05 – 31-DEC-08
The objectives are: (1) determine important structural and durability characteristics of high-performance concrete with a high volume (35-70%) of coal fly ash explain structural and durability behaviour of HVFA concrete by investigating microstructure and chemical and mineralogical composition (3) describe the behaviour of fly ash concrete with theoretical models (4) compare the environmental effect of fly ash concrete with reference concrete, using life cycle analysis.
