Comparative analysis of rapid chloride penetration testing for novel reinforced concrete systems

Project: Research project

Project Details


Transportation agencies have been rapidly deploying emerging concrete materials to improve the sustainability and durability of reinforced concrete infrastructure. This project will focus on the chloride penetration behavior of several novel concrete materials in comparison to baseline ordinary portland cement concrete mixtures that are representative of systems used in transportation agencies in the northeast region of the United States. The goal of this research study is to create an understanding of how novel concrete materials such as ductile concrete systems (e.g., UHPC, ECC, HyFRC) and recycled aggregate concrete behave in rapid chloride environments. The intended outcome of the project is to support transportation agencies in selecting and implementing novel concrete materials to improve durability of the transportation infrastructure.
