Cracow University of Technology posted this:Beafire – simulating fire resistance of reinforced concrete beamsThe Beafire technology consists of an originally developed algorithm for finding fire resistance of reinforced concrete beams and a prototype of an engineering application based on it. The algorithm couples 1D mechanical modelling with 2D simulation of cross-section temperature distribution what makes it very efficient. The application consists of GUI and stimulation engine modules.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:New organo-metallic catalysts for the manufacture of polymersA research group from the Inorganic Chemistry Department of Alcalá University has developed a technology that presents a range of catalysts based on coordination complexes and organometallic, active in functionalization processes (expoditation, hydrosilylation) and polymerization of different organic substrates (olefins and cyclic esters). They are metal complexes belonging to the first transition groups (groups 4-6) and elements from the main groups (groups 1,2 and 13). Its application is aimed at the synthesis of materials with new properties (silicon polymers, biodegradable plastics, polyesters) and the production of small molecules with high added value, used as starting products in many industrial processes (epoxides, silanes). The group is looking for manufacturing agreements and joint venture agreements with companies from the agrofood industry, construction and petrochemicals.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New reusable, lightweight and economical formwork elementThe research group Materials and Construction Systems for Buildings of the University of Alicante has developed a reusable formwork element to implement joints with continuous reinforcement armours in reinforced concrete construction elements. It is easy to adapt to any construction element currently available in the market. It is a low cost element, quick and simple to use it, and it allows to obtain clean and geometric concrete joints. The research group is looking for companies interested in license agreement or other kind of cooperation.

Universitat de Lleida posted this:A dynamic thermal system for reducing energy demands in buildingsDARWIN-PCM is a disruptive dynamic thermal system that allows building envelopes to modify their thermal properties. The invention DARWIN-PCM consists of a dynamic thermal system to be used in buildings to minimize their energy consumption for space heating and cooling. The invention can be implemented in any sort of building envelope including walls, floors, roofs, fenestrations, and doors. It is composed of several layers of materials, one of them is mobile and contains a material with capacity to absorb and release high amount of heat - such as phase- change materials (PCM).
