This webinar will focus on the innovation in the construction, design and analysis of tile vaults and their use as permanent formwork for concrete shells, to reduce construction waste and cost. Concrete would be poured onto a tile-vaulted formwork, afterwards forming a composite structure. The Extended Limit Analysis of Reinforced Masonry (ELARM), a newly developed method for the structural analysis and design of these composite structures, will also be presented.
