Client

Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt)


  • Executing the BASt research programme FE 15.448/2007/ERB on fire behaviour and spalling of fibre-reinforced concrete in road tunnels
  • ZTV-ING curve
  • Investigating concrete compositions with different polypropylene fibre modifications in unloaded small fire tests
  • Conducting two loaded and two unloaded major fire tests on full-scale tunnel lining segments of closed construction
  • Conducting two loaded fire tests on scaled test specimens (frame corners) for open construction
