CARBON CONCRETE COMPOSITE – C³: Acceleration of standardisation and approval procedures in the context of test-based design and performance testing for C³ products (CarbonSpeed)

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.

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”.

Behaviour of different aggregates under accelerating conditions in ASR testing methods

The research project should generate essential knowledge on the behaviour of different aggregates under accelerated conditions within ASR testing methods. The target was to obtain with different testing methods a consistent assessment of the alkali sensitivity of aggregates and concretes respectively and to clearly identify expansive reactions that are not caused by ASR.
