SIS Visits Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands

SIS Visits Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands

 

Last week, our Director – Structures, Nick Wotton visited the Technical University of Delft in The Netherlands and met with Dr. Marko Pavlovic – Assistant Professor of Steel & Composite Structures – Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences. TU Delft is ranked 4th in the 2019 QS World Rankings in Civil Engineering and is a global leader in Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composite engineering.

 

Nick was given a tour of one of the world’s most unique FRP Composite test facilities at TU Delft where they have developed the Hexapod. Weighing in at approximately 60 tonnes, it is also referred to as ‘The Beast’. The machine is multi-axial, which means it can move in six directions. The facility has vast experience in development and testing Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composites and offers the World’s only dedicated course in FRP – Composites in Structural Engineering.

 

TU Delft’s laboratories have been involved in the development of a bio-resin FRP Composite bridge made out of flax and resins derived from plants. It is the first time this bio composite material has been used on this scale and is a giant leap forward to promote more eco-friendly construction materials. SIS technical professionals are working with TU Delft and FiberCore Europe to bring these technologies to the Oceania region as we move in to our next phase of manufacturing in Australia. 

 

 

 

FiberCore SIS 18m Clear Span Composite Bridge for The Municipality of Rotterdam

FiberCore SIS Bridge for The Municipality of Rotterdam

FiberCore Europe have recently manufactured and supplied an 18 metre clear-span, 5m wide FRP bridge to The Municipality of Rotterdam. This elegant prefabricated single element composite bridge is a wonderful addition to this vibrant city’s open space parklands and replaces an outdated and degrading structure.

 

All FiberCore SIS bridges require almost zero maintenance and will last at least 100 years. A smart, sustainable and advantageous choice by the Municipality.
