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 have dramatically decreased CO2 emissions and Embodied Energy footprints and 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.

Courses

Materials and structures

Starting from the basic knowledge of concrete technology, this course provides the relationships between the composition, processing, microstructure and structural properties of "new concretes", with a special emphasis on Ultra High Performance Fiber Reinforced Concretes (UHPFC).

UHPFRC for structures - Fundamentals & Properties

This course aims at giving students the fundamental knowledge necessary to design, model, and apply Ultra High Performance Fiber Reinforced Concretes (UHPFRC) in structures, in a sustainable way. It provides an extended and comprehensive insight into engineering and science of these materials.
