In the last 20 years, within the field of seismic protection of masonry buildings, various techniques involving the use of plaster reinforced with fabrics or nets based on fibers have progressively emerged. These techniques are collectively known as TRM (Textile Reinforced Mortar). This contribution retraces the main stages of an in-depth research journey conducted on a specific TRM technique called Composite Reinforced Mortar (CRM), providing an overview of the experimental testing and numerical modeling experiences aimed at achieving a solid understanding of its behavior and effectiveness in enhancing the performance of masonry structures.
Founded as a company to produce composites for building, today FIBRE NET offers specialised engineering services and assistance to the entire construction industry supply chain.
Alongside innovative composite materials, we offer all-around solutions for the maintenance and rehabilitation of large-scale works.
