PRECAST COMPONENT WITH HIGH MECHANICAL, THERMAL AND ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCES FOR LOAD-BEARING AND NOT LOAD-BEARING WALLS

MISE-UIBM
Application Number: 102015902340378 (BA2015A000026)

Abstract
Partially precast system for opaque vertical components, both structural and not, featured by high thermal insulation and reinforced by metallic framework. The system is composed of a disposable formwork made of two conglomerate-based panels, both combined with an additional EPS panel showing high thermal insulation. The panels are connected by horizontal transversal connections, in order to shape a reinforced cavity, where concrete (or equivalent with innovative materials) can be onsite poured.  The above-described panels become an integral part of the vertical system: the final onsite grouting also connects adjacent wall modules in both longitudinal and transverse direction, in order to create a single integrated structure. The system is designed to withstand suitably the vertical and horizontal stresses of seismic type and to be equipped by plant engineering systems.

Keywords
Precast concrete walls, high thermal performance, sustainability, construction methods and techniques, Technical and technological performances of pre-cast systems.
