Smart Engineering collaborates with Acciona Infraestructuras to design a discharger channel using plastic-fibre reinforced concrete

News

Since last January 2th, Smart Engineering collaborates with Acciona Infraestructuras in the structural design and optimal concrete reinforcement calculus of a collection and stormwater drainage channel in Port – Gentil (Gabon, Africa). To perform this structural design, Smart Engineering has emerged as an alternative approach to conventional reinforcing the use of plastic-fibre reinforced concrete. This structural solution allows an optimization of the sections, reducing the consumption of raw materials and the need for assembly operations. Ultimately, this leads to a significant reduction in economic costs for the work. The construction of the canal is expected to begin in the first half of 2015.
