Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:New bio-based insulation material from vegetal pith and natural bindersPartners to further develop the system through technical cooperation are sought. The areas of developing are: performance improvement: use of other bio-based binders and additives, material applications (construction systems, renders, etc.) and manufacture at commercial scale. Partners to establish commercial agreements are also sought.

A solution for Surface enhancement through acoustoplasticity An innovative system to modify the surface integrity, i.e. surface texture and roughness, hardness and residual stress, of previously milled workpieces has beThe Challenge The manufacturing industry demands effective finishing processes to which workpieces could be subjected to enhance their future in-service performance. This need is especially required for innovative materials, as they usually show a detrimental surface integrity state due to their low machinability. In the transportation industry, the manufacturing of components such as turbine blades, requires the application of local processes that could reinforce critical areas of the workpiece that are subjected to demanding regimes, such as fatigue. Improving the surface and near-surface texture, roughness, residual stress and hardness is a mean to prevent crack growth and enhance the behavior of these components. In this context, the vibration-assisted ball burnishing tool has proved positive results in laboratory applications, and is ready for a leap forward into the industry,
University of Vigo posted this:New non-destructive method for “in situ” monitoring of anticorrosive protection of organic coatingsThe main novelty of the device and procedure is the new portable sensor adaptable to virtually any surface. The device, fixable by vacuum to the surface under study, makes possible the measurement of the electrochemical interfacial impedance, that is the main parameter of interest for adherence quality and anti-corrosion performance.
University of Vigo posted this:Diagnosis and cleaning using laser technology for the restoration of historical monumentsSince ancient times granite has been used in historic buildings. Some restorers used to apply molten beeswax on their granite surfaces to stop imminent deterioration of the monuments. At first, this treatment was a good solution to consolidate the stone, but with time it resulted counterproductive. This method allows removal and cleaning of wax and other contaminants from porous stones in historical monuments and artworks using nondestructive means through laser technology.
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.

Some of the key features of the technology are: • Prototyping of Textile reinforced composite sheets yields products of various shapes and forms for structural as well as nonstructural applications. • Roofing sheets, slabs, tiles, filigree products, shells, pipes, etc. are some of the products made by using TRCPT. • The products can find a host of applications in infrastructure engineering including structural strengthening, repair and rehabilitation, lining of tunnel or canal, column jacketing, fire protection, wind energy generation infrastructure, affordable mass housing, etc.
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Thermochromic mortar coating for a more sustainable construction CSIC has developed a thermochromic mortar coating with optical properties in the solar radiation range that vary according to temperature in a reversible way. The mortar is especially interesting for energy efficiency in buildings. Its solar radiation absorption at low temperatures is high, helping to maintain indoor heating, while its reflectance increases during the summer, reducing over-warming of the envelope. Industrial partners from the construction industry are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Systems and applications based on indoor positioning via led-lightingThe use of LED lamps available for lighting of different parts of a building or room in such a way as to allow the transmission of very high-frequency codes non-perceptible by humans together with the illumination lights. These codes (one unique code for each LED lamp) will be decoded by light detectors included in smart-devices, or by detectors designed particularly for this purpose. From the code information, the device positioning can be determined with high precision.

The proposed approach to the problem of safe operation of devices is fundamentally different from the solutions which are currently used in industrial practice. Currently, the supervision of these objects is based mainly on standard non-destructive testing methods. The main limitation of used methods is the lack of the possibility of both examining the object in its entire volume and testing the device in working conditions. Developed algorithm allows to effectively solve current problems in the diagnosis of chemical installations related to the assessment of their technical condition and determination of the conditions for further operation in real time. The algorithm is particularly recommended for monitoring devices in which adverse damages occur due to the long-term operation.
