Initial concrete testing

The concretes produced for the Fehmarn Belt Exposure Site have been subjected to a comprehensive series of initial tests, e.g. the measuring of various properties of the freshly mixed concretes, as well as the determination of a number of mechanical properties.


Results from the initial testing program can be found here:
