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.
University of Vigo posted this:Removable system for continuous connection of square tube profilesThe removable system allows mounting on each profile separately, joining then in continuity with plates at the head of each of the flanges. The use of anti-buckling clamps prevents local buckling of the walls of the profiles, associated with tightening of flanges. Flanges have nerves to reduce stresses. The same flanges are valid for connecting different sized sections of square tube profiles.
Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Mixture of lime and cement with improved thermal and acoustic characteristics.A Spanish research group from the Department of Architecture of Alcala University has developed a new modified mixture of lime and cement with improved thermal and acoustic characteristics. This mixture is applicable to interior and exterior walls in new constructions and rehabilitations or to restore the built heritage. The group seeks manufacturers of conglomerates materials and construction companies specialized in rehabilitation to reach licensing agreements, collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.
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.

The images are captured with digital, thermal imagers, with the use of drones and robots to enter to areas with difficult access and from them, the processing that facilitates the diagnosis is carried out with a software. This tool is useful for conservation and maintenance companies of buildings, real estate corporations, insurance companies or certification to achieve collaboration and commercial agreements with technical assistance.

The invention respects to a product with excellent energy absorption capacity to impact and sound damping for vehicle applications, houses, machinery, equipment and devices with superior performance.
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.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Innovative thermal conditioning panel in ceramic material able to cool or heat any environment in a simple, sustainable and energy-efficient wayThe main advantages of this technology are: - The technology consists of a cooling and heating system more sustainable and efficient. This system allows the usual air conditioners, forced air convective or hot water radiators to be replaced. - The installation and fastening system is very simple, so the panels could be easily mounted and dismounted. - Panels can be arranged horizontally, vertically or any other inclination, applied on walls and ceilings. - The use of ceramic materials enables greater lightness, so it can take larger formats (up to 300 x 100 mm; thickness 3 to 5 mm) - Ceramic material panels are more resistant to the effects of humidity, condensation, adsorption of dirt and moisture, as well as a higher mechanical strength. - Ceramic materials provide greater flexibility in terms of aesthetics and design, so different colour, texture or image could be applied to the walls and ceilings of a room.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:New method for evaluating the durability of concrete by using conductive gelsThe main system innovation is the use of ion conductive gels as reservoirs of chlorides in migration assays. Until now the techniques had to start with the full saturation of the specimen and keeping it in contact with a chloride ions solution during diffusion or migration tests. This guaranteed the absence of other transport mechanisms (such as capillary absorption) and avoided surface moisture changes. This new method is simple to implement and allows the elimination of these requirements. Another innovative feature is that the system allows greater measuring accuracy of the advancing chloride front, because this advance occurs more homogeneously than in conventional tests in contact with liquid solutions.
