Using RSTCF and industrially produced steel fibers, EcoLanes developed concretes suitable for wet consistency and RCC. Following extensive numerical and analytical work, a design framework and software were developed by UTI for use by design engineers. Analysis and design tools were developed based on the concept of long-life rigid pavements (LLRPs) made with wet/dry SFRC. Methodologies were developed for the LCA (life-cycle analysis) of LLRPs made with wet and dry SFRC. The construction of the demonstration pavements confirmed that the developed technology can be easily applied in practice.||URI:||https://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/14250||ISSN:||00105317||Type:||Article|
