The Concrete Research Council (CRC) is providing research grants to promote progress, innovation, and collaboration within the concrete industry. CRC is a council of the American Concrete Institute’s (ACI’s) non-profit subsidiary, the ACI Foundation.
Projects throughout the United States showcase how construction materials are playing a supporting role in industries where new technology rollouts, tight timelines, and sustainable design are the new norm. Fast-setting, calcium sulfoaluminate (CSA) cement-based products are increasingly the key to achieving demands for both new and renovated construction.
In 2006, the Strategic Development Council of the ACI Foundation (established by the American Concrete Institute) recognized the need to set minimum requirements for strength, serviceability, and durability for existing structures.
