This project is an expansion and a partial reconstruction after fire damage to a waste management facilitie for organic and commercial waste. All heat-stressed buildings and buildingparts , i.e. composting plants, biological waste treatment plants, mechanical waste treatment plants, substitute fuel plants, various other heat-stressed sedimentation basins, as well as the heavily used floor slabs, storages, etc. had to be planned.

Due to the high thermal, chemical and mechanical stress on the materials, the highest demands are placed on crack resistance and concrete technology of the reinforced concrete structures. A temperature measurement series initiated and coordinated with the operator was the basis of our 3-D FEM building simulation for a realistically consideration of the actual stresses due to temperature. The obtained results flow into a large number of complex, heat-stressed waste treatment plants nationally and internationally.
