Practical application in architecture

Textile-reinforced concrete and structural engineering

Boris Peter of Knippers Helbig Advanced Engineering presents various practical applications of slender concrete structures with textile reinforcement.

The appropriate application of carbon-reinforced concrete in architecture and structural engineering requires the development of design types which make efficient use the specific characteristics of the material, reflecting them in their shape and structure. An extremely durable structure with low maintenance can be realized by the combination of reducing the weight as much as possible and using the carbon-reinforced concrete in a structurally...
