Knitting bespoke reinforcement for new concrete structures


The results of a research project which aimed to replace internal steel reinforcement with a knitted composite reinforcement cage made from carbon fibre.

A potentially transformative project for concrete construction, that could greatly simplify the reinforcing of complex shapes.
