Integrated model for predicting the flexural capacity of concrete elements reinforced with non-corrodible discrete reinforcements

Polypropylene fibres (PP) have been used mainly in non-structural applications for limiting crack width due to shrinkage effects of cement-based materials. Being insusceptible to corrosion, PP fibres can also be regarded as viable discrete reinforcement elements for the production of thin concrete elements. The relatively low elasticity modulus, tensile strength and almost frictional-based reinforcing nature of PP fibres have been…

Urban furniture in fiber reinforcemenet concrete with high durability

Within the scope of the “NG_TPfib” R&D project, Exporplás and CiviTest have, in the recent past, developed a new typology of polypropylene fibers for the production of urban furniture of high durability by eliminating conventional steel reinforcements susceptive to corrosion. This reinforcement replacement strategy also allows the development of lighter and more elegant urban furniture with complex geometries at competitive…
