The extensive potential for the use of fiber reinforced matrices, hybrid technologies and multi-material lightweight design in the construction industry is currently still being exploited to a very small extent. There is often a lack of knowledge and experience about the potential applications in fibre reinforced materials resulting from properties, characteristic values and process chains. The working group therefore offers interested builders, architects, engineers, scientists, material and building product manufacturers as well as construction companies a platform for interdisciplinary discussion as well as for the exchange of ideas and experience on all topics relating to the practical building applications of fiber composites. Included are fiber composites with both mineral and polymer matrices.
The main topics of the WG include:
Our aim is to develop and provide guidelines/knowledge databases etc. for the use of fiber reinforced matrices in the construction industry. This requires close cooperation with other WGs of the CU Bau network. This joint work with other WGs of Composites United e.V. in the fields of automotive, aerospace, ceramics, politics and sustainability generates an added value that is unique worldwide.
