High-performance materials from ceramic fibers

Hochleistungswerkstoffe aus keramischen Fasern Ceramic composites are used in high-temperature lightweight construction, where, for example, they can replace metallic superalloys and outperform them in terms of temperature resistance, specific strengths and modules. One field of application is the development of new types of aircraft gas turbines and stationary gas turbines with
reduced emission values and higher efficiencies.

Construction using concrete reinforced with renewable materials

Bauen mit Textilbeton Tomorrow’s building material is here today. Textile-reinforced concrete (TRC) is durable, formable in diverse shapes and suitable for lightweight construction. As the name suggests, conventional TRC is reinforced with carbon or glass-fiber fabrics rather than steel. A research team at the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research, Wilhelm-Klauditz-Institut WKI is now replacing these fabrics with eco-friendly natural fibers. These alternatives rival conventional concrete’s performance, but leave a smaller carbon footprint, and cost less to make. Researchers will present a prototype of a natural fiber-reinforced concrete bridge at the BAU 2019 trade fair in Munich on January 14 to 19, 2019. more
