Explosive concrete spalling at high temperatures results in serious economic and human safety problems. A research programme will study innovative concretes using new fibre types able to exclude toxic effects and avoid spalling.
Aims to develop a class of new mortars based on mortar 'portland + inert' and combined to different kinds of resins polymerising 'in situ' with improvement of some mechanical characteristics of concretes.
Development of a new resin for the construction and furniture industry with environmental advantages and a shorter pressing time, resulting in energy and cost savings.
To develop an innovative material for construction combining hemp fibres with lime.
Dev.Of concrete with photo catalytic properties.Cement&titanium dioxide are to be dev.To get efficient combinations for use in photo catalytic concrete.The reactions are to investigated as are the concrete properties and long-term effects.
To develop a new binder system of self-hardening mixtures for the manufacture of foundry moulds and cores. The system will be based on the application of a new inorganic geopolymer-based binder
The main objective of the project is the study of a new asphalt agglomerate with self-healing properties to enhance its durability and reducing the maintenance works needed on the roads produced by the traffic and the climate conditions.
