Concrete for infrastructure projects
The Concrete Centre at Danish Technological Institute has provided various concrete technology services to major infrastructure projects, for example:
- The Great Belt Fixed Link (initial testing, full-scale tests, and production testing of components and concrete as well as testing of the early age properties of concrete and calculations of temperature and stress).
- The Øresund Fixed Link (owner/client consultancy, preparation of technical notes used as background information for the specifications, input for the concrete specifications, testing of the early age concrete properties, production testing, five-year inspection).
- The Malmö City Tunnel (initial testing of components, testing of the early age concrete properties, temperature monitoring equipment, concrete production and testing).
- The Marmaray Tunnel in Istanbul (scrutiny of the concrete specifications, temperature and stress calculations, courses in hardening technology, testing of early age concrete properties, initial testing of concrete components).
- The Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link (external concrete laboratory, preparation of technical notes used as background information for the specifications, establishment of a field exposure site at Rødby Harbour, design and production of test samples for field exposure at Rødby Harbour).
Copenhagen Metrocityring (consultancy and testing for the Copenhagen Metro Team, testing of concrete properties for the concrete supplier)
Istanbul Strait Crossing/ Eurasia Tunnel (quality control of the concrete panels of the drilled tunnel)
The Concrete Centre can provide services to constructors, consultants, manufacturers, and clients in connection with large infrastructure projects. If you want to know more about the Concrete Centre, please check our video on Concrete Infrastructures and do not hesitate to contact us.
