Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Purdue University is enabling Indiana to make its bridges better with a new "internally cured" high-performance concrete. The Joint Transportation Research Program, a partnership between the Indiana Department of Transportation and Purdue, worked with INDOT to create specifications for implementing the internally cured high-performance concrete. "This material will reduce maintenance costs and allow bridge decks to last longer," said Jason Weiss, a professor of civil engineering and director of Purdue’s Pankow Materials Laboratory.
