Content: Lightweight structures and material optimized systems are of major relevance in the building industry and particularly in the design of concrete structures. This is not only for aesthetic reasons, but also to use material in a resource conserving way. The increase of strength characteristics, as one measure to reduce cross section dimensions, postulates the prefabrication of cementitious materials under laboratory conditions. This thesis examines the contradiction of the possibility to realize slender concrete elements and the complexity of the discontinued homogeneity arising from necessary segmentations. Proposals of implementation strategies are demonstrated and verified on the basis of selected case studies.

Philipp Eisenbach studied civil engineering at the Technical University Darmstadt, the University of New South Wales in Sydney and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Since his graduation in 2006 he has practiced in structural engineering and realized several national and international renowned projects. In 2017 he received his doctorate from the University of Kassel under the supervision of Manfred Grohmann.
