Optimizing rheological and mechanical properties of ultra-high performance glass concrete (UHPGC) for different infrastructure applications

A new type of ecologic ultra-High-performance glass concrete (UHPGC) has been developed at University of Sherbrooke through the use of waste glass materials of different particle-size distributions derived from glass culets. The developed UHPGC proved to give several technological, economical, and environmental advantages compared to the conventional ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC). Producing UHPGC mixtures fitting the requirements of infrastructure market has not yet been investigated. This project is to produce optimized UHPGC mixtures in terms of their rheological properties that could be suitable for various infrastructure applications. The research will also evaluate the mechanical and durability properties of the optimized UHPGC mixtures.
