Title
Advanced Reinforced Concrete Materials for Transportation Infrastructures
Abstract

The objectives of this project are to:
(i) identify novel materials that can be rapidly deployed in New Jersey’s reinforced concrete transportation infrastructure to improve the longevity and reduce the long-term costs of new and existing construction;
(ii) select cost-effective and structurally feasible materials in coordination with NJDOT for evaluation using experimental and computational methods to benchmark constructability, deterioration
behavior across a range of mechanisms, and in-service structural performance among a diverse group of materials;
(iii) compare the economic impacts of different advanced materials across durability mechanisms and structural applications by performing life-cycle cost analyses; and
(iv) develop guidelines and specifications so that the materials can be rapidly deployed across the state in appropriate applications.
