Development of new methods of construction for protection and reinforcement of infrastructures towards extreme accidental stimuli (fire, explosion, earthquake)
The PRORETEX project
aims to develop new methods of construction integrating textile reinforced
concrete, by associating 6 partners (2 laboratories and 4 SMEs). This
consortium is led by the Sulitec Group, specialized in insulating composites.
The project focuses on:
- The development of a new generation of textile reinforced concrete through the formulation of fibers and hybrid technical textiles with high performances (especially for high temperatures), that are compatible with the operating conditions in the construction field.
- The optimization of the reinforcement methods.
- The definition, and pre-qualification of methods of construction that fit the actual dimensioning standards.
