|2. High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete for Construction and Repair of Concrete Pavements|
|Date of Start|
|Present Status and Progress|
| The technical reports have been prepared on different activities by the collaborative agencies.
Further, evaluation work of the roads made with fibre reinforced concrete is in progress
| • There is large saving of natural conventional materials.
• Saving in energy, as the byproducts used already contained huge potential energy.
• Make the environment less polluted by making the roads or their repairing with high performance materials vis- a-vis conventional materials.
|High performance materials are being used now for making city and campus roads in the country, thereby achieving good quality roads with saving in life cycle cost.|
