Increase of the resistance to earthquakes
DUCON-concrete increases in the form of a shell, not only the resistance of reinforced concrete columns against explosion and impact but also from the effects of earthquakes.
The thin shell with DUCON prevents breakage of the reinforced concrete as a result of explosion and earthquake and thereby ensures the stability of the building structure. Therefore, the protection of high-rise buildings in front of a “Progressive Collapse” is possible.
Shell and column-strengthening are available as precast or in-situ concrete in new and existing buildings. Column-strengthening with DUCON are due to the short installation periods also very economical.
