CONCRETEFiX 4:5 – Recent research into Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete
Is RAAC even concrete? Recent research into Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete
by Chris Goodier, a professor of construction engineering and materials with Loughborough University, UK
Professor Chris Goodier will share insights in the use of Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete in the light of the UK Department for Education’s announcement earlier this year not to open some schools containing RAAC, which put concrete in the media spotlight like never before.
Prof Goodier is a member of the Concrete Society (UK), a Fellow of the Institute of Concrete Technologists, and has been leading the UK’s research into RAAC. He is a member of the IStructE RAAC Study Group and has been advising numerous government and industry parties on the properties of RAAC and how it is different to conventional reinforced concrete.
