Cost-Effective ECC for Transportation Infrastructure

The Transportation Consortium of South-Central States (Tran-SET) is a collaborative partnership between nine majorinstitutions and two community colleges, led by Louisiana State University, whose mission is to support all phases of research, technology transfer, workforce development, and outreach activities of emerging Technologies that can solve transportation challenges in Region 6.

The research focus of Tran-SET is on FAST research priority four (improving the durability and extending the life of transportation infrastructure). To this end, Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECCs) fit into the focus of Tran-SET as a material with the potential to significantly enhance the durability of current and future transportation infrastructure in the region.
