Preliminary results for field application

Joint project: Carbon Concrete Composite

Reinforced concrete is a construction material suitable for a wide variety of uses and therefore indispensable in state-of-the-art construction projects. High-rise buildings, tunnels, or bridges subjected to high loads cannot be realized without reinforced or prestressed concrete, thus making it a material of great value. But Germany’s most important construction material also has its weaknesses. Due to corrosion, the life span of reinforced concrete structures falls far short of expectations while at the same time involving a heavy use of resources and energy. Steel is, however, not the only...
