The 9th edition of the International Conference Advanced Composites in Construction (ACIC) will be held in University of Birmingham (UK), September 3rd -5th , 2019.
It will focus on current topics within the construction industry with the purpose of highlighting the use of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials in new and existing all-FRP structures as well as strengthening, refurbishment and reinforcement applications in traditional infrastructure.
The preliminary but highly topical conference programme offers an exhibition of products and services, well-prepared presentations on the most pressing industry issues and a dinner allowing for establishing business contacts and finding potential partners.
The preliminary highly topical conference programme offers an exhibition of products and services, carefully prepared presentations of speakers on the most pressing issues of the industry and a conference dinner to establish useful contacts and expand the environment of potential partners.
Proposed sessions for the conference ACIC include, but are not limited to:
- Strengthening of concrete and masonry structures
- Strengthening of metallic and timber structures
- Internal reinforcement and prestressing
- Wholly polymeric structures
- FRP Materials and systems
- Long term performance and durability
- Damage mechanics and failure criteria
- Analysis and design
- Inspection and monitoring
This 3 day conference focuses on practising engineers, asset managers, researchers and representatives of regulatory bodies.
The main goal of the event is an active exchange of scientific and technical information on the rapidly changing scene of advanced composites in construction.
Registration is open on the official website: Advanced Composites in Construction 2019.
