Partnership with KOCED, South Korea (iRESIST+)

An international joint research collaboration between JRC and the Korea Construction Engineering Development Collaboratory Management Institute (KOCED CMI) was launched in 2019. The project SEP+ (Development of Textile-reinforced mortar & Capillary tube Panel retrofitting technology to simultaneously improve Seismic and Energy Performance of the existing buildings) investigates the use of novel prefabricated Textile Reinforced Concrete panels with integrated capillary tubes for the combined seismic and energy retrofitting of the existing building envelopes. This novel concept is currently being evaluated on a half-scale two-storey building at the shaking table facilities of KOCED.
