The Construction Material Day, which focused on the topic of textile-reinforced concrete, took place on March 26 and received an overwhelmingly positive response. Around 140 experts from various different fields traveled to Aachen to hear the talks on this innovative material that were held by research and industry representatives.

In the lively discussions that followed the talks, participants shared their own experiences and opinions on the specific topics. Some of the conference contributions appear in the March issue of the German journal beton (concrete).

Head of the Institute Michael Raupach was delighted to hear the positive feedback on the event, which was jointly organized with the InformationsZentrum Beton. He highlighted the positive and extraordinarily successful development of textile-reinforced concrete since this specialized research area started in Aachen and Dresden 20 years ago.
