The research program is structured in different axes. The animation of these themes is entrusted to a pair consisting of a representative of the industrial world and an academic representative to ensure a good balance between theoretical and pragmatic approaches.
The corresponding research topics are:
- Theme 1: Durability Testing
- Theme 2: Definition of eligible performance thresholds
- Theme 3: Reference concretes
- Theme 4: Contractual aspects
- Theme 5: Dissemination
Themes 4 and 5 are themes that will be involved from the start of the project. In particular theme 4 will be responsible for verifying that actions within the themes 1, 2 and 3 will answer questions about the performance-based approach of the durability of concrete.
