Improving other materials with wood

In this research field, essentially the use of wood to improve the properties of other material is studied for two frameworks:

  • Strengthening of concrete using wood fibres can improve its ductility and create self-healing properties. Wood and plant fibres are used and modified in order to increase the mechanical and durability performance of concrete mixtures.
  • Improvement of material properties of porous asphalt concrete by means of wood fibres.
