updated at months 28 and 38 Design, print and update of brochures to disseminate the project activities in the communication events organized (fairs, meetings, website, etc). The goal is maximizing the impact and reach potential future customers. The brochure will be market-oriented in order to support at medium term the commercialization of the technologies developed in the project. Related to Tasks 9.3 and 9.6.
The deliverable will contain information about crystalline admixtures, nanofibers and nanocellulose and the corresponding process parameters that will enable successful formulation and delivery of UHDC functionalized through the one-of-a-kind properties of the additives. Related to Task 4.1.
This document will collect and analyse case-study data provided by the industrial partners about durability concrete pathologies for the applications of interest, in order to establish the key factors for durability depending on the application: large-scale civil works in dock construction and enlargement, concrete application in geothermal plants, design and construction of precast elements for harbour services and coastal defence infrastructures and underground structures treated with local repairing interventions employing crystalline additives. Related to Task 3.2.
The deliverable demonstrates the fulfilment of SO1 and contains information on mix design concept and criteria for UHDCs finalized to different application technologies (including self consolidating, textile impregnated) and different exposure conditions. Related to Tasks 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4.
The report summarizes the results and provides guidelines to check the durability of UHDC through accelerated exposure tests to the devised aggressive environments. It addresses measurement of the change of chemical composition and microstructures via SEM, EDS, TGA and XRD. Related to Task 5.1.
Report justifying durability Key Performance Indicators and their target values to be achieved by the designed UHDCs for each scenario, taking into account exposure conditions, type of structure and required application (new/retrofitting). Related to Task 3.1.
led by STRESS LTP RINA Report on the description of the Durability Assessment based Design methodology (DAD) which will be adopted to formulate and develop the UHDC material and for the structural design of the intended application cases. Based on the previously identified structures and operational scenarios, and on the associated key performance indicators, a durability evaluation and modelling activity in real service conditions will be carried out. Results of the analysis developed in WP2 will be applied in the framework of the monitoring and validation activities of the pilot demonstrator, to be performed in WP7. The deliverable will be divided into two parts: 1) I version M18: Using the output of T2.2., relating to the identifications of key factors affecting material and structural durability, the general description of the DAD concept and methodology for the formulation of UHDC will be presented. The key factors will be also characterized through the preliminary analysis and the structural modelling at macro scale of the identified structures (T2.2), considering the case with or w/o the adoption of the UHDC. 2) II version M32: validation and updates of the DAD methodology will be provided through a continuous interaction with the activities and the results of others WPs; in particular, the DAD will be contextualized through its application on the pilot case studies (WP7). Related to Task 3.3.
It contains information on the management of data generated by the project activities both during the 4years span of the project and after the project has been completed. It will be structured as follows: 0. Administrative data on the project and on the DMP; 1. Dataset description, generation and collection, including type of study, source and type of data, nature and format, amount and requirements for hardware and software, data reuse and integration and value of the data set; 2. Data management, documentation and curation, including storage access and backup policies, metadata and data standards, and quality; 3. DATA SECURITY AND CONFIDENTIALLY OF POTENTIALLY DISCLOSIVE INFORMATION, including identification of confidential and sensitive data, main risks to their security, ethics and legal compliance; 4. Data selection and preservation, including definition of the data which will be preserved and how and how long; 5. Data sharing, governance of access, roles and responsibility of users; 6. Responsibilities and resources 7. Any other relevant institutional policies for data sharing and securities. Related to Task 2.2
RDC will lead the creation and update of the project website (www.uhdc.eu), which will be the main platform to upload the project contents and link the sources with additional information. On the site the project public results will be uploaded and updated, together with activities, newsletters, brochures, public reports and link to scientific papers. The site will be promoted in social networks, websites of the beneficiaries, brochures and fairs. The MOOC will be organized through this website. Related to specific aspect of Task 9.4.
