This project consisted of the seismic evaluation and seismic improvement of a 73 m high cyclone tower on a cement production plant. Carbon fiber with high resistance to high temperatures EB- FRP was used for the reinforcement . Due to the high operating temperature of the structure ( 85 ° C ) an epoxy resin tailored for application was developed and tested. This is one of the first applications in the world with a resin of this type.
