Martin Scheurer wins Hanns Voith Foundation Prize 2019
In the thesis he investigates how textiles can be used in textile reinforced concrete. With the new method only 3 different tests are necessary to make a good initial assessment of the suitability of textiles for use in textile reinforced concrete. It enables companies to find an initial assessment of the suitability of their textiles for use in textile reinforced concrete within a period of approx. one month, which is relatively inexpensive.
Target group for this newly developed method are textile manufacturers who want to enter the growing textile reinforced concrete market.
The use for the textile manufacturers is the lowering of market entrance barriers. An enterprise can find out now fast whether the entrance into the textile reinforced concrete market with existing textiles is possible.
