LIGHTWEIGHT UHPC FACADE PANEL WITH LED DISPLAY
Keywords:facade panel, UHPC, LED diodes, LED display
AbstractThis article deals with the development of lightweight UHPC facade panel which also can serve as an LED display. Combining both functions into one gives the potential ability to create a LED display on the facade of the building. The article describes the experiences of the development and production of a small-format prototype facade panel, including the installation of LEDs and their electrical connection. The result of the research is the prototype of a 16mm thick small-format lightweight facade panel with a LED display for displaying text on two parallel lines. Thanks to the waffle lightening, the total material and weight savings are approximately 58% compared with the full cross section.
