Work package 4 - Sandwich loadbearing panel

Coordination: WTCB, MeMC, MACH, 3D

In WP 4, a loadbearing sandwich wall with TRC composite faces will be structurally analysed, designed and experimentally validated. Specific Composite Structural Insulation Panel (CSIP) types will be evaluated and optimised for compressive and flexural capacity by means of an extensive experimental program and predictive FE-models. The effect of profiled skins and integrated columns in the CSIPs on the loadbearing behaviour will moreover be numerically and experimentally evaluated. The environmental impact of CSIPs in TRC will be assessed by a life cycle analysis on structural element level.
