TG7.7 - Sustainable concrete masonry components and structures

TG7.7 - Sustainable concrete masonry components and...

 
  • Current requirements on energy efficiency, building comfort and sustainability have stimulated a growing use of new concrete technologies for construction and retrofit of (i) load-bearing walls in unreinforced, reinforced and confined masonry buildings and (ii) cladding, infill and partition walls in reinforced concrete or steel framed building structures. In that respect, researchers, designers, construction companies and building owners have paid special attention to the use of autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) and light-weight aggregate concrete (LWAC) with recycled waste aggregates for production of innovative concrete masonry units (CMUs). It is also emphasised that CMUs may be formulated with special aggregates to produce specific colours or textures for finish use.

    The scope and objective of TG7.7 will move in that direction in order to develop a general methodology for construction, design, assessment and retrofit of concrete masonry panels and walls.
