[en] Reinforced concrete durability is a great issue in modern buildings designers because durability is related to sustainability. The longer the service life of the concrete structures, the lower wastes are produced, and the higher savings are generated. Transport of liquids and gases thorough the concrete make up a durability indicator known as permeability. (Author)
[en] A journey as a common thread of the investigation, supposes the finding of a classical geometry in a Louis I. Kahn totally unconnected to the modern movement of the early 20th century. The discovery of a series of buildings of timeless character which were shown as monuments, as if from a ruin they were treated. They remain exactly in the same location of nature for centuries. A House. A Museum. A Library. A journey to the past, to antiquity. In short, the discovery of the classical city of Rome in the United States. The second guiding thread is the geometry representation, the connection of the canopy of stars with the vary in size, and the connection with different buildings representation. The modern geometry of Boullée and the classic geometry of Kahn have a connection of transition-repetition areas, with a specific function, between the outside and the inside building
[en] Given the current situation of ecological overreach characterized by aspects such as climate destabilization, over-consumption of resources and the disappearance of animal and plant diversity , it is considered necessary to study and compare constructive technologies that respond to the housing needs of low environmental impact, with low economic impact and socially respectful. Assuming the consequences of such a situation is especially complex. For this it is necessary to consider the environment as a system affected by human action. As a consequence of this we can understand that local actions affect globally. Another approach to consider in such a situation is whether highly technical solutions are proportionate and assumable . This criterion determines the choice and approach of construction systems of technification and complexity defined for greater viability and for real sustainability. The construction systems selected are those that use the earth as the main material, as it is the one that best meets these requirements for the Iberian Peninsula at present. The following figures show examples of land-based constructions from traditional models such as tapial to modern technologies such as the superadobe
[en] The emergence of new materials and applications of them, and the digitalization of these in the constructive processes allow to optimize the pre industrialization . The parameterization and customization demand a great request at the present time to obtain systems of easy assembling, light, digitizable and energetically sustainable . This research allows to implement with advanced and innovative technologies of energy improvements, obtaining constructive solutions that direct us towards a pre industrialization with energy consumed null . The industrialization of the process from the outset with a horizontal transfer of technology from other sectors, such as the automobile or aeronautics, allow the development of advanced interactive tools to be able to give a new look to the management of the Construction works .
[en] Concremote is the real time monitoring system that allow us to know when is the concrete ready for stripping [1-2]. Concremote reliably delivers data in real time on the temperature- and strength-development of the fresh concrete on site (concrete maturity) [3-4]. It´s main benefits are: • savings of time and money by definition of the correct moment to strip form work or to end curing measures • safety by documentation of concrete works on site • safety by verification of the correct concrete strength for pre-stressing of concrete members or lifting of climbing formwork to the next suspension point.
[en] Most studies regarding to material properties within the scope of architecture rely on the validity of lineal approximation . The simplicity, low computability costs and the capability to represent a large amount of experiments are foremost the reasons why this models are preferred rather than more complex ones . The goal of the present article is to explore the behaviour of the thermal standard model in a non-standart sample...
[en] Over the last decade, the European Union in general, and Spain in particular, has subjected the provision of tyre used in landfills to an increasingly strict regulation. This demonstrates the considerable environmental problem and the associated damages in accumulation of this landfill waste. Therefore, the main objective is the use of this waste in the work itself, as a filling of an embankment core   . In order to have a better knowledge of the behavior of the embankment and consequently a better quality of it in its future evolution, we proceeded to follow up with the following objectives: a) Deformability control of the layers inside the embankment. b) Control of the evolution of the filing temperature. c) Influence of landfill in the quality of groundwater (leaching). After the monitoring performed, it can be said that the vertical pressure produced in the foundation of the embankment due to the use of tires out of use in the filling, is approximately 70% lower compared to that obtained in a conventional landfill, considering the filling of tyres a suitable material for foundations with low capacity.
[en] Industry 4.0 is currently presented as an alternative to the different economic sectors of each country with new technological and digital developments. According to the research carried out, the construction industry will grow 4.2% per year between 2018 and 2023 in terms of market value, with opportunities for expansion in residential, non-residential and infrastructure projects . In addition, each year about $ 10 billion is related to construction spending worldwide, which is equivalent to 13 percent of world GDP . In contrast, the diagnosis of the construction sector in labor productivity is discouraging compared to that of the manufacturing industry in general and other economic sectors. The approach of an intelligent factory that makes industry 4.0 and new technologies is an important alternative for construction in Colombia that, together with the application of good practices with stakeholders, is presented as an exit to take a leap positive in productivity. In Colombia, Social Housing (VIS) appears as one of the sub-sectors susceptible to begin to implement the change to an industrialized system, because there is a favorable projection of volume in the market in the coming years, it requires a little design, focused on covering specific needs, and with low cost.
[en] CITE was born in 2016 with the aim of promoting the transfer of knowledge about learning, innovation and competitiveness between productive and training areas, as well as to publicize best practices on innovation in training and learning in the building sector. Likewise, the conference has acted as a meeting point between different social agents related to training, in order to encourage cooperation among its participants and extend it to other areas related to learning, innovation and competitiveness in that sector. This new edition of the CITE, the fourth, aims to lay the foundations for the development of joint projects and produce relevant results in the field of technological innovations. Program organization CITE 2019 contains different activities within technological innovation, oral communications, posters and virtual exhibitions of different subject areas such as construction materials and systems, health and safety energy efficiency, automation, rehabilitation, maintenance and pathology building, experiences in technological innovation in building, speakers from different places through different types of presentations.
