Seismic and energy renovation (Conclusion)

IR reflektierende Beschichtung

„The tests carried out on FRP reinforced masonry walls showed a three-fold increase of the maximum diagonal compression load determining the breakage of the reinforced wall specimen, compared to the unreinforced one. Therefore, the results of the study lead to the conclusion that such a technique is particularly suitable for the purposes of increasing peak strength in masonry structures, as well as improving stress-strain responses, thanks to the increase in equivalent tensile stress. These results represent a step forward in understanding the potential of FPR meshes as they had not yet been tested on lava stone masonry, and can therefore be added to literature on experiments carried out on other type of structures. The tests carried out on the ceramic coating Weiterlesen …

„The proposed paper presents a possible design approach to historical building renovation. It is based on two innovative building techniques, particularly suitable for this purpose. The first one is related to masonry structural reinforcement. It consists in a particular Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) wire mesh. This structural system has been recently introduced and offers several advantages when compared to traditional structural steel wire meshes. The second technology is a thermo-ceramic coating which provides an improvement in indoor comfort. It offers several advantages over traditional building insulation technologies.  Weiterlesen …
