Stones on stone: concrete as data recording medium for music

Gets the surface of ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) a defined structure, the material obtains a new feature. Distinctive properties of the UHPC can be "adjusted" by adding superplasticisers, fine fillers and reactive additives. This record with the song of the Rolling Stones "(I Can not Get No) Satisfaction" is a striking example that data can be saved and replayed on UHPC.

The new Technology Roadmap „Process Sensors 4.0“

The technology roadmap "Process sensors 4.0" updated recently shows the requirements for smart process sensors – from simple temperature sensors up to complex measuring systems being developed today. This kind of "smart" sensor provides services within a network and uses information from it. This is a prerequisite for the implementation of cyber-physical systems (CPS) within future automation concepts for the process industry.

Glassy surfaces made of concrete – BAM at the ARCHITECT@WORK 2015

BAM scientists developed ultra-high performance concrete in the EU research project "H-House" for self-supporting, storey-high light-weight composite façade elements with incombustible thermal insulation. In company with the project partners BAM exposed the "glossy" samples in the special exhibition "Concrete" at the trade fair ARCHITECT@WORK 2015 in Vienna. The exhibits can be viewed until November 15 at the OFROOM gallery in Vienna.
