Low Carbon Footprint Concrete

Brief Project Description: This project aims to study the durability of low carbon footprint and environmentally friendly concrete (EFC). Conventional Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) is a durable relatively low-cost ubiquitous material in transportation structures, but has a large carbon footprint, accounting for approximately 8% of the annual worldwide production of CO2. Alternative mixes, such as those using pozzolanic cement replacements, Portland Limestone Cement (PLC), and aggregates from waste streams, e.g. tires and glass, have favorable environmental attributes, but lack established track records for durability. The goal is to understand the durability issues with promising EFCs, measure them, and mitigate issues as they develop.
