Development of innovative hybrid sandwich panel slabs

Development of innovative hybrid sandwich panel slabs: experimental results In this paper, a new generation of composite sandwich slab is proposed as a solution for the rehabilitation of slabs in old masonry buildings. An innovative solution was developed during this research formed by four components: a Deflection Hardening Cement Composite (DHCC) layer on the top compression skin, a glass fiber…

Ovar opens bridge only 4 cm thick

CiviTest participated in the construction of the meetings for the installation of a prefabricated pedestrian bridge over the Cáster river in Ovar. The pedestrian bridge is formed by a 40mm thick reinforced self-compacting concrete tray (BACRF), supported by pultruded profiles of glass matrix reinforced with glass fibers (GFRP), whose development was the scope of the Project QREN Pontalumis.
