Durable Concrete for Infrastructure under Severe Conditions

Share with :

The main goal of the LORCENIS project is to develop long lasting reinforced concrete for energy infrastructures with lifetime extended up to a 100% under extreme operating conditions. The concept is based on an optimal combination of novel technologies involving customized methodologies for cost-efficient operation. 4 scenarios of severe operating conditions are considered:

  1. Concrete infrastructure in deep sea, arctic and subarctic zones: Offshore windmills, gravity based structures, bridge piles and harbours
  2. Concrete and mortar under mechanical fatigue in offshore windmills and sea structures
  3. Concrete structures in concentrated solar power plants exposed to high temperature thermal fatigue.
  4. Concrete cooling towers subjected to acid attack

 

Conference Topics
