Research project(s)

Reuse of Tyre Fibres for Fire-Spalling-Proof Concrete (IGNIS)

Reuse of Tyre Fibres for Fire-Spalling-Proof Concrete (IGNIS) is a research project funded by H2020 through the Marie Slodovska Curie Programme. Fire-induced explosive spalling (violent peeling-off of concrete surface) is a major drawback of modern high-performance and high-strength concrete. Tunnels and buildings have been seen to experience catastrophic failure due...
