Background and goals of the research project

 

It generally takes several years for new technologies to come onto the market in the building sector, not just on account of the development work and performance verification procedures required, but also because of the legal aspects to be considered. The aim of the C³ CarbonSpeed project was to create a guideline to complement the existing verification procedures of the building authorities (approval in individual cases, national technical approval) with a view to shortening the time required for the introduction of solutions with carbon concrete.

Performance-related approaches for the assessment of new product developments are being discussed in European Standardisation committees working on updated versions of the Eurocodes and standards for concrete technology. Similar approaches are being considered by the building authorities (German Institute for Building Technology, DIBt) and the European Organisation for Technical Assessment (EOTA). In the course of the project, these approaches were to be applied to carbon concrete and the feasibility of their implementation discussed with the decision-makers of the building authorities.

Sponsors

The C³-Carbon Concrete Composite research project was supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), as part of the “Twenty20 Partnership for Innovation” Programme.

CARBON CONCRETE COMPOSITE – C³: Proofs and testing concepts for standards and technical approvals

In the course of the project, VDZ planned, inter alia, to work together with the ibac, Aachen, to develop a data base for the environmental compatibility of the new composite construction carbon concrete, by leaching and irrigation trials.

CARBON CONCRETE COMPOSITE – C³-Environment: Characterisation and leaching tests for the determination of the environmental safety of C³

Goal of the research project was to generate a broad, scientific verified data base via corresponding leaching and shower tests (laboratory and outdoor tests) on carbon-concrete test specimen with different concrete covering of the carbon-fibres as well as with different percentages of the carbon-fibres to evaluate the environmental compatibility of the new, innovative composite building material “carbon-concrete”.
