Reinforced concrete

Reinforced concrete is concrete in which reinforcement bars («rebars») or fibers have been incorporated to strengthen the material that would otherwise be brittle.

Fiber-reinforcement is mainly used in shotcrete, but can also be used in normal concrete. Fiber-reinforced normal concrete is mostly used for on-ground floors and pavements, but can be considered for a wide range of construction parts (beams, pillars, foundations etc) either alone or with hand-tied rebars.

On basalt materials application as protective means for weapons, military and special equipment

Based on the tests, basalt woven materials show similar results to aramid and hybrid ones but the monolayer costs 9-10 times less compared to the aramid also basalt fabric offers better fire and thermal resistance. Calculations and experimental data lead to the conclusion that basalt materials application for the protection of ground, naval and air equipment is promising.
