  • Reconstruction of the Rheinsteg with carbon concrete

    The innovative material carbon concrete is used for the reconstruction of the Rheinsteg near Albbruck. The reinforced concrete slab of the 200 m long foot and cycle path bridge from the 1930s on the border between Germany and Switzerland showed severe corrosion damage and had to be demolished.  As a replacement, a carbon concrete slab of similar thickness will be installed without any additional coating, so that the tare weight of the structure will not increase and the existing colummns and steel beams in the main load-bearing direction can continue to be used after a basic renovation. The Institute of Structural Concrete of the RWTH Aachen University carried out experimental and theoretical investigations on behalf of the company solidian GmbH and the client, the Rheinkraftwerk...
