Project

Users Guide to “Green” Concrete in Building Construction

Research purpose

The enthusiasm for and use of “green” concrete in buildings currently exceeds the technical knowledge to effectively specify, use, and accept the product. There is a distinct need for a “Users Guide to the Use of Green Concrete in Building Construction” which will help contractors explain to owners, architects, and engineers the differences between green concrete and traditional concrete mixtures for building construction. In addition, a comprehensive program of testing will be carried out which will cover five concrete mixes tested with 100%, 20%, and 50% cement, as well as with 70% cement replacements of fly ash and slag cement.
