Inorganic Phosphate Textile Reinforced Cement composite moulds Vrije Universiteit Brussel
In order to meet the new demands of the industry, for example: reduction of production time, material reduction, cost saving and ecological aspects a new mould production technique will be presented. The aim of this research is the development of a mould technique which can replace the classic thermo harder or metal moulds, using textile reinforced cement. This mould type will even be applicable for the production of thermoplastic ...
TEXTILE REINFORCED CEMENT COMPOSITES FOR THE DESIGN OF VERY THIN SADDLE SHELLS: A CASE STUDY Vrije Universiteit Brussel
high fibre volume fractions creates a composite that has -besides its usual compressive strength - an
important tensile capacity. This cement composite is particularly suitable for strongly curved lightweight structures. These building applications do not only benefit from the cement composite's flexible reinforcement and high ...
Structural stay-in-place formwork in textile reinforced cement composites for very slender concrete columns Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Experimental investigation of the buckling behaviour of textile reinforced cement sandwich panels with varying face thickness using Digital Image Correlation Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Buckling behaviour of structural insulating sandwich walls with textile reinforced cement faces Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Loadbearing insulating sandwich panels with Textile Reinforced Cement (TRC) faces can combine the structural and insulating performance of a conventional wall configuration in one lightweight element. This makes them very suitable as a new type of wall element for low- and high rise residential buildings. By combining 2D and 3D textiles in the TRC faces the performance of the panels can even be improved. This paper presents a preliminary ...
