Abstract [sv]

The world is changing. Big cities are attracting more and more population, millions every day and growing. Who among the megacity dwellers would want to wake up in the morning staring at a construction demolition site, dusty, rusty and noisy? The increasing need for an improved infrastructure within the mega cities evokes a big industry of building replacements. The complex combination of building materials and methods is making the de-construction and recycling the demolition waste material very difficult. Today's methods are very complex, time consuming and the end use of the by-products are very limited. Moreover all of these methods are further limited by governmental regulations and laws. These laws are held in order to keep the dynamic city life to be able to cope with the de-construction jobs running around the city. Reinforced concrete being the most celebrated and used structural element, how might we find a smarter way to de-construct it and re-use the byproduct more accurately?
