Project description

The goal of this project is to advance the state of the art and state of the practice regarding the use of portland-limestone cements (PLC) containing greater than 15% limestone. The Performing Agency shall (1) synthesize information available in published (and unpublished) literature, (2) perform a gap analysis to determine research needs, and (3) develop and execute a laboratory and field research program to address the identified research needs and obstacles to implementation in Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) applications. The Performing Agency shall evaluate these key technical issues and will provide valuable data on fresh and hardened concrete properties, along with any durability issues involved with PLC.
