The New Boundaries of Structural Concrete 2022

September 15-16, 2022 – Department of Innovation Engineering of the University of Salento, Lecce, Italy


The event is organized by ACI-Italy Chapter and Department of Innovation Engineering of the University of Salento, and is the sixth edition of the Workshop “The New Boundaries of Structural Concrete”.

The workshop aims to collect and to disseminate the latest results of the research projects in progress in Italy and abroad, concerning the production, application, durability and sustainability of concrete and cementitious materials, as well as the design, building techniques and repair of concrete structures.

The workshop is open to the scientific community – at the national/international level – and to the industrial and professional milieu, in order to facilitate the debate on the many critical issues concerning structural concrete.


Main Topics

  • Innovative cementitious materials
  • Corrosion and self-healing in R/C structures
  • Concrete and reinforced-concrete under extreme environmental conditions (earthquake, wind, temperature)
  • Concrete and reinforced-concrete in accidental conditions (fire, impact, blast)
  • Green concrete and sustainability of concrete structures
  • Short- and long-term behavior of R/C structures
  • Bond and connections in RC, prestressed concrete (PC) and mixed structures
  • Strengthening and repair of concrete structures
  • Performance and life-cycle assessmente (LCA) of new concrete structures
  • Ageing and deterioration of concrete structures

  • Workshop Language

    The working language of the Workshop will be English, which will be used for all presentations and printed materials.
