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.
Steinbeis Centre for Technology Transfer India posted this:Textile Reinforced Concrete Prototyping TechnologyTextile Reinforced Concrete Prototyping Technology (TRCPT) encompasses green and innovative construction practices that can be deployed to make products without using moulds. 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 Alicante posted this:System for fixing armours during concretingThe research group “Materials and Construction Systems for Buildings”, from the Building and Urbanism Department of the University of Alicante, has developed a new and simple system that allows to fix any type of armours in concrete construction elements during the concreting process. This system avoids the movement of the armours in an efficient, technical and reusable way, and, therefore, also avoids future expensive treatments in case of unwanted movements. This new system is characterized by its low cost, light weight, ease of use and versatility for any constructive element. The research group is looking for companies interested in commercial exploitation.
Laser Consult Ltd. posted this:All-natural hydrophobic oil absorbent powders and granules for environmental & industrial purposesThe technology consists of an original industrial process by which natural materials can be turned into products with hydrophobic oil adsorbent properties. The captured oil can be extracted and recycled, and the product can be reused several times over. These products can be developed as powders or granules with varying levels of hardness, water resistance, size, and density for diverse set of applications.
University of Huelva posted this:Method for the combined foaming/modification of bitumens for use in pavingThis patent describes a cost-effective foamed bitumen process to be applied for cold recycling of aged flexible road pavements. Additionally, the base bitumen used is in-situ modified during the process and, consequently, both low and high temperature properties result remarkably improved. Finally, waste gypsum and phosphogypsum are preferably used to form the foam
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Vibroacoustic spectrometry system for the non-destructive analysis of materialsThe research group "Radiation and Sensing Group" of the University of Alcalá presents a system of non-destructive analysis of materials and structures, by spectral study of the indirect vibroacoustic excitations of the materials analyzed. By means of this system it is possible to perform in situ the analysis of materials and structures without previous treatments, solving with that the need to use coupling liquids that the current ultrasonic based systems currently use. The group seeks to reach licensing agreements, collaboration agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance, with companies from the agrofood, pharmacy, construction, ceramics, wood, cork and other materials sectors.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Ventilated facade building system of folded sheet without frameA research group from the Department of Architecture of the University of Alcalá (Spain) has developed a ventilated facade system characterized by the incorporation of a folded sheet placed in the middle of the section, which acts as a structural element of the façade and holds the rest of the materials and constituents of the facade. The sheet is folded forming ribs on both sides of the sheet, strengthening the façade and producing suitable modulations for both fixing the outer finishing material and transmitting the loads (own weight and horizontal actions) to the structure of the building by means of fastening elements located in the edge of the floor slab. The group looks for companies in the building sector and manufacturers of facade systems to sign technical cooperation agreements, commercial agreements with technical assistance and patent licensing agreements.
University of Vigo posted this:Lateral connection system by removable clamps for I or H profilesThe presented system allows detachable lateral connections, at right angles, type ‘cross beam to column flange’ of I and H standard profiles made of steel. The system uses standard mounting clamps without previous specific machining operations (as may be welding or drilling).
University of Vigo posted this:Removable and reconfigurable system for corner connection of square tube profilesThis removable connection system can be adapted to the size of the section, by adjusting the length of the connecting bolts, using the same flanges. Is usable for a wide range of standard profiles, which avoids the need for a flange size for each profile section.
