  • Development of Low-Carbon Concrete Materials Infused with Biochar for Bridge Applications [TAMU2024-1-01] : The overarching research objective is to develop low-carbon concrete materials infused with biochar that potentially can be implemented in bridge construction and repair. The primary knowledge gaps toward that end are the early-age structure-processing-property relationships. Quantifying these relationships will enable biochar-infused concrete to be used reliably and at higher volume fractions of replacement for portland cement. Within that objective, our specific goal in this project is to map the relationships among biochar dosage and properties to fresh flow properties and early-age mechanical properties and microstructure.
