Abstract

The specific research described in this dissertation is based on the author’s work over the years as head of the Eduardo Torroja Institute for Construction Science’s4 Technical Unit for the Assessment of Innovative Construction Products. The hypothesis proposed is the feasibility of developing methodology able to deliver a preliminary estimate (in just 1‐3 months’ time) of the technical suitability of certain innovative construction products for their intended use. The product families studied are the object of technical assessment guides or guidelines authored by two European organisations, the Union Européenne pour l'agrément technique dans la construction (UEAtc) and the European Organization for Technical Assessment (EOTA). Such families are eligible for or have been awarded technical approvals (TAs, also referred to in English under the French term “agréments”) or European Technical Approvals (ETAs), which is presently an 11‐month process. The proposed methodology would consist of a pre‐assessment procedure referred to hereunder as DIT PREASSESSMENT/PREEVALUACIÓN (Spanish initials, PPD). Based on the experience obtained from trials, calculations and studies undertaken in the framework of this research, the proposed procedure would identify the performance factors (primarily identification and fitness for use, although also durability where ascertainable via shortterm testing) that predict construction product or system suitability in a more immediate time frame.
