Material Development and Optimization

Through the targeted selection and analysis of the raw materials, the recyclable properties are precisely targeted and proven.

Selected Methods

  • Optimization of the packing density
  • Methods of statistical experimental design and evaluation (DoE – Design of Experiments) with the aid of numerical optimization
  • Robustness analysis

Design and optimization of building materials

  1. Ultra-high performance concrete (e. g. plant-specific UHPC optimization)
  2. Self-compacting concrete (SCC)
  3. Architectual, textile, fibre and heavy concrete
  4. Porous lightweight concrete (e. g. acoustic concrete)
  5. Lightweight concrete (e. g. structural load-bearing concrete with heat-insulating function)
  6. Recycled concrete (concrete with proportions of recycled aggregates)
  7. Cementitious, mineral foams
  8. Soil-cement mortar
  9. Two-step mixed concrete
  10. Mortar with special properties (injection mortar, restoration mortars, mortar for geothermal applications)
  11. Phosphate-bonded mortar and concrete
  12. Polymer concrete
  13. Autoclaved building materials (calcium-silicate brick, autoclaved aerated concrete)

Blend development of earth- and claybased products

  • Earthen materials and products
    - Earth blocks (DIN 18945)
    - Earth masonry mortar (DIN 18946)
    - Earth plasters (DIN 18947)
    - Earthen boards (DIN 18948)
  • Heavy Clay and fine Ceramics
  • Geopolymere
  • optimization of ceramic blends and bodies:
    - suitable primary and secondary raw matierials as well as material substitutions
    - special product properties e.g. sound insulation, acoustic, thermal conductivity, strength
  • recource efficiency through new manufacturing technologies
    - shaping
    - fiering prozess with different kiln atmosphere
    - calcination of clayey raw materials
