Abstract: In the wake of Hurricane Sandy in October, 2012, debris from the devastated adjacent community of Breezy Point, New York was deposited on Jacob Riis Park’s concrete parking field by the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Damage to the pavement resulted from both the debris-handling operations and the direct impact of the storm itself. Repairs to the historic concrete specified by the US Army of Corps of Engineers (USACE) were to utilize concrete based on natural cement which conformed to the requirements of ASTM C10 to match the original pavement. At the same time, USACE performance requirements specified a minimum compressive strength of 31 MPa at 28 days, well beyond the typical properties of natural cement. Through development and testing a compromise repair mix was formulated based on a combination of natural cement, Roman cement and portland cement binders. The mix met the Corps of Engineers performance requirements while maintaining ASTM C10 cement as 50% of the binder.
