Analyzing biological and chemical damage on 20th-century construction materials

Analyzing biological and chemical damage on 20th-century construction materials by University of the Basque Country Dr Iratxe Ibarrondo using portable high-resolution spectroscopic techniques to analyze the impact on 20th-century construction materials of the environment and biological conditions in the surrounding area. Credit: Iratxe Ibarrondo/UPV/EHU. It is customary for the research conducted in the IBeA research group in the UPV/EHU's department of Analytical Chemistry to be approached from a multidisciplinary perspective. One of the group's lines of work is the diagnosis and restoration of historical and cultural heritage for which spectroscopic analytical techniques are used. Although the group's research has until...

A software application to ease the reuse of construction materials

A software application to ease the reuse of construction materials by Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne Jan Brütting’s original contributions on reuse are very well received by practitioners and researchers. Credit: 2020 Alain Herzog New software developed at EPFL can help architects to design building structures that incorporate both new and reused components, thereby lowering their environmental impact. The construction industry is among the world's most polluting sectors: in developed countries it accounts for some 40% of CO2 emissions. It consumes up to half of all resources and generates about a third of all waste. As a result, in order...

Biomimicry Lab’s discovery could change building construction technology in the 21st century and reduce global warming

Biomimicry Lab’s discovery could change building construction technology in the 21st century and reduce global warming The research findings have now been passed on to Sacred Heartian parent Mr. Ajay Pillai who is an eminent researcher and alumnus of UDCT to continue further advanced research and enable possible commercial production of these findings. Local communities can get local mud, ruminant faecal matter and green matter and use our students’ researched protein to construct their habitats, replacing cement with natural protein which could have a huge impact on reducing global warming. Biomimicry Lab’s experiential learning pedagogy enables students to research and...

Buildots raises $12.5 million to expand construction tech innovation The startup develops technology that allows construction companies to keep a close eye on the processes at a construction site with computer vision and artificial intelligence Fouders of Buildots (from right) Yakir Sudry, Roy Danon and Aviv Leibovici. Photo: Eyal Tuag The Buildots system provides managers of construction companies with a full picture of their projects, including a visual image, fault detection, tracking of timetables and providing notice when there are expected delays. The system collects images from the construction site via cameras mounted on helmets being used by supervisors during...
