High Tech Concrete: Where Technology and Engineering Meet - Proceedings of the 2017 fib Symposium | Year: 2017
The transfer strategy, worked out by the consortium "WiTraBau - Knowledge Transfer into the Construction Industry" ("Wissenstransfer im Bauwesen") funded by the "German Federal Ministry of Education and Research" (BMBF, "Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung") (Reichling 2017) was used to communicate and discuss relevant research results with the German Cement Industry. The VDZ gGmbH (VDZ) is one out of seven joint researchpartners in the WiTraBau-consortium. In the thematic call "NanoTecture - Nano Technology in Building Industry", several research results were identified to be of potential interest for the Cement Industry. These results were classified into application options. One example for transferring the scientific findings into a potential practical application is a compilation of suitable cements for the application in Ultra-High-Performance Concrete (UHPC). In three out of eleven research projects the applicability of different cement types acc. to EN 197-1 and cements with lower clinker content for UHPC were investigated in laboratory tests and in field side projects. Based on these results VDZ has proposed a list of suitable cements to the committee which is currently preparing a new guideline for UHPC under the aegis of the German Committee for Structural Concrete (Deutscher Ausschuss für Stahlbeton e. V., DAfStb). © Springer International Publishing AG 2018.
