The green profile of AAM structures is a key-selling-point. The main objective of ESR13 is an in-depth assessment of the environmental performance of AAM structures compared to traditional OPC-based concrete in comparable structures. Research objectives are:
|To perform a literature study and get acquainted with the subject matter of AAM concrete.
|To study the LCA of new structures with AAM concrete and of existing structures rehabilitated with AAM-TRM, in due consideration of the service life assessment.
|Development of recommendations for LCA of AAM concrete as a function of various use cases.
Propose an environmental assessment in accordance to EU calculation scheme in order to foster the implementation of AAM in EU market
|Approach for AAM concrete structures and related service life aspects;
|an LCA framework for AAM-based structures, compliant with the service life limit state framework of ESR12;
|approaches and related LCA models, including inventory data, for AAM-based structures;
|sustainability design guidelines and related cases studies of LCA performance of AAM concrete in construction and rehabilitation.
