Project description

The amin goal is, in general terms, to set up some coordinated actions concerning 'Buildings and Infrastructure' . More specifically, the main is to cooperate concerning research related to the following themes (not limited list): - New cementitious materials, like e.g. self-compacting concrete - Durability of cementitious materials, like e.g. sulfate attack - Fatigue of self-compacting concrete structures: design, and residual strenght after fire - Fire resistance of concrete structures: design, and residual strength after fire - External strengthening of beams in reinforced concrete by means of fibre reinforced polymers - Application of concrete for road construction
