Carbon reinforced concrete (in short: carbon concrete) allows thin cross sections and lightweight, high-strength structures. This is demonstrated in this article using the example of a lightweight, prefabricated ceiling girder. In addition to the new building material carbon concrete, another innovative cement-bonded composite material is used: concrete-impregnated nonwovens. The ceiling element is a very light, slim construction that is curved in the transverse direction. In addition to the material and construction, the article describes the experimental investigation and the possibility of calculation using an analytical approach.
