RP1020u3: Mainstreaming of Geopolymer Concrete for Pavements

Project leader name: 
Professor Stephen Foster, UNSW
Project status: 
Current
Project period: 
05/2019 to 12/2019

This project builds on the backbone and success of projects RP1004 and RP1020. In mid-2018, and as a direct outcome of RP1020, the Handbook for Specification and Design of Geopolymer Concrete will be complete – this succeeding project embeds the outcomes of this work with large scale demonstration applications in pavements. Working with industry partners City of Sydney, Ash Development Association, and the Australasian (Iron & Steel) Slag Association, large pavement sections in Sydney will be cast, using knowledge generated in RP1020, and monitored for performance.
