Istanbul Development Agency (İSTKA) Innovative and Creative Istanbul Financial Assistance Program, studies carried out "Turkey Ready Mixed Concrete Association of Concrete Research, Development and Technology Advisory Center" project, Turkey concrete brings an important center still in R & D.
Research shows that non-standard concrete is one of the most important causes of earthquake destruction, application and project errors. In Turkey, more than xnumx't percent of the population of "high earthquake danger" that live in regions susceptible to earthquakes and that the issue needs to be renewed and is known to 70 million.
The need for a research center capable of performing advanced analyzes and responding to the needs of the sector has emerged in recent years, when earthquake resistant construction and urban transformation are on the agenda.
By signing a major project in light of these developments, Istanbul Development Agency (İSTKA) Innovative and Creative Istanbul within the scope of the Financial Support Program "Turkey Ready Mixed Concrete Association of Concrete Research, Development and Technology Advisory Center" was established.
Special R & D and technology consultancy needs will be answered
The center aims to ensure the feasibility of advanced tests in determining the concrete quality of Istanbul and to meet the specific R & D and technology consultancy needs of the construction and ready-mixed concrete sectors. The Center will serve as a center capable of conducting advanced level concrete researches that are open to the common use of the sector and all stakeholders, developing innovative and long-lasting concrete production techniques, and providing consultancy on qualified and green concrete production. The Center will also carry out important studies in the field of environment, taking into account the needs of the sector and evaluating wastes and developing alternative raw materials. Project, Turkey Ready Mixed Concrete Association (TRMCA) within the body, the Ministry of Industry and Technology Ministry is working in coordination Istanbul Development Agency (İSTKA) with innovative and support creative Istanbul Financial Assistance Program, it was implemented in partnership with the Technical University.
İSTAÇ, Istanbul Technical University and Boğaziçi University contributed to the project as an associate. The center will be able to provide service before and after production and support manufacturers at the design stage and at the product compliance control stage.
Citizens as well as producers will benefit from the Center
The center will serve contractors, ready-mixed concrete, precast concrete, cement, aggregate, chemical admixture and mineral admixture producers, citizens and municipalities who need advanced tests to determine the quality of concrete in their buildings. Citizens from their existing buildings with the facilities of the center or by expert organizations to be able to analyze samples taken. 2019 will start operating in November.
TRMCA for Concrete Research, Development and Technology Advisory Center Project: Turkey Ready Mixed Concrete Association (TRMCA) Yildiz Technical University, offered in partnership with "Turkey Ready Mixed Concrete Association of Concrete Research, Development and Technology Advisory Center" project was launched on 1 October 2018. Within the scope of the Project carried out within the scope of the Innovative and Creative Istanbul Financial Support Program of Istanbul Development Agency (ISTKA), within the scope of the Project, the production of high quality concrete and environment-friendly concrete that is capable of conducting advanced concrete research techniques that are open to common use by the sector and all stakeholders, develops innovative and long-lasting concrete production techniques. A research and development center was established.
Turkey Ready Mixed Concrete Association of Concrete Research, Development and Technology R & D activities that can be done at the Counseling Center are as follows:
1) Special Concrete Research: Concrete with long service life and so on. material tests, concrete resistant to special environmental effects, concrete service life calculations, 100 annual concrete design, equivalent concrete performance designs based on durability. studies,
2) Environment: Re-evaluation of construction debris wastes in concrete production, evaluation of industrial combustion wastes in concrete production, floor ash, industrial slag etc., evaluation of industrial wastewater and concrete industry recovery water in concrete production,
3) Special Concrete Design Works: Development of special concrete, mortar and plasters that clean air, adsorb gases such as CO2, NO2, development of self-healing concrete designs, development of antibacterial concretes, mortars and plasters, concrete with increased hydrophobicity, concrete and mortar designs that provide waterproofing, development of special repair mortars etc. for strengthening of historical structures. work can be done.
