News
Most recently, Emmanuel Denarié was at the origin of the development of next generation ultra high-performance fiber-reinforced concretes (UHPFRC) with synthetic fibers, adapted for structural applications (project within SNSF NRP 70 and supervision doctoral thesis Amir Hajiesmaeili - 2019). These new materials open a wide field of new opportunities for the improvement of existing structures and construction of new ones. They will soon be applied in Switzerland.

Current work


Most recently, Emmanuel Denarié was at the origin of the development of next generation ultra high-performance fiber-reinforced concretes (UHPFRC) with synthetic fibers, usble for structural applications (project SNSF NRP 70 and supervision doctoral thesis Amir Hajiesameili - 2019). These new materials open a wide field of new opportunities for the improvement of existing structures and construction of new ones and will soon be applied in Switzerland

Biography


Emmanuel Denarié is a civil engineer, with a PhD in Materials Science. He worked for 3 years in a civil engineering company where he was in charge of the design of structures and the maintenance of bridges. He has 30 years’ experience on research and applications in the field of building materials, advanced concretes, and rehabilitation of reinforced concrete structures. He is since 2000 senior scientist and lecturer in the Laboratory for Maintenance and Safety of structures, at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), in charge of research and development activities on the application of concretes and advanced cementitious materials to the improvement of existing and new structures. 
 In 2013, under the lead of Emmanuel Denarié, in cooperation with CEREMA, Subdivision des Phares et Balises from Lorient, and Lafarge, a turret at sea (Le Cabon, Brittany, France) was reinforced by a cast on site 60 mm thick UHPFRC shell. The strain hardening mix was developed jointly with Lafarge. This successful application in extreme conditions of access and restraint of the substrate (thin ring geometry) opened the way to large-scale industrial applications of UHPFRC for the reinforcement of existing structures.
